About the Edition

'I Love...' is a new print inspired by the theme of 'childhood'. Shrigley's distinctive drawing style imbued with dry humour cuts to the point of human nature, making satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. Recurring themes pervade his story telling, capturing child-like views of the world; the perspective of aliens and monsters or the compulsive habits of an eavesdropper shouting out loud. His simple, verging-on-juvenile drawings annotated with his distinctive scrawling handwriting hold up a sardonic mirror which somehow generates flashes of profound clarity.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS is a fundraising set of fine art prints that celebrates 100 years of Save the Children. A third of the profits from the sale of this print will be donated to Save the Children. The Save the Children Fund is a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570).

Work began on the 100 Years project in 2018 when we were asked by Greg Nugent (of Inc London) if we could get involved in help raise funds for, and awareness of, the Save the Children’s centenary celebrations. We had worked with Greg before to make the London 2012 official prints.

Together with Sir Nicholas Serota and Tracey Emin we invited 10 international artists to make a print which reflected broadly on the theme of childhood. As always, it’s a fascinating and exciting process developing a series of prints and seeing how different artists respond to the brief.

There has also been the added pleasure of producing the majority of the prints in our new print studio in Margate which has allowed us to give extra time and attention to creating them. The outcome of is that we have been able to produce a truly exceptional portfolio of work.

We are proud to be involved with Save the Children. We will be donating 1/3 of the profits from sale of the prints to the charity which provide vital support for the incredibly important work that they carry our with vulnerable children around the world.

About the Artist

David Shrigley was born in 1968 in Macclesfield, UK. He is now based in Brighton, England. Shrigley's hilarious and disturbing doodles, sculptures, and anecdotes depict the world as an absurd place. He embraces the paranoias, obsessions (stalking is a favourite theme), insecurities, moral conundrums, preoccupations, and anxieties of everyday life. Everyone is fair game for his humour, from the British Royal Family to his peers in the art world. From the childlike renderings and messy handwriting of his drawings to the spontaneous "public" projects documented in photographs and his playful sculptures, his work is anti-monumental and whimsical, but inherently sincere.
