David Shrigley has exhibited widely in Europe, North America and Australia. His work encompasses many media including drawing, painting, sculpture, animation, performance and music. He is best known for his distinctive drawing style and works that make satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. His quick-witted drawings and hand-rendered texts are typically deadpan in their humour and reveal chance utterings like snippets of over-heard conversations.
Furthermore, Kent & Curwen introduce their first Chinese New Year capsule collection consisting of four pieces, including sweatshirts & long-sleeved tees. To celebrate Chinese New Year, Kent & Curwen have reworked their signature rose patch into this year’s lunar year of the rat. Kent & Curwen have combined the emblem of the rose and the 2020 Chinese Zodiac symbol, with a variety of colours in ecru, white & navy to create this CNY capsule collection.
