Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing x David Shrigley
Originally designed as a limited edition sculptural piece, cast in heavy polyurethane resin, the David Shrigley Swan has been blown up, literally. This inflatable swan may be missing the graceful curves true to a classic swan, but with its hand-drawn blank expression and erect white neck, it knows exactly what it is, it is a "Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing". Named lovingly by David Shrigley himself, the statuesque swan stands at 35 inches tall and comprises all that is to love about Shrigley's charismatic work, while also being pool-ready. The summer of Shrigley is here.
About the Artist
Third Drawer Down Studio first collaborated with British artist David Shrigley in 2007. Shrigley came into prominence through his drawings, publications, and sculptural works. His drawings have a kind of throwaway beauty featuring monster children, idiots, aliens and bad parents. Full of twisted lists and exchanges, Shrigley is a Third Drawer Down favourite both for his angst about modern living, his everyday disappointments, and his endless cynicism.
