Panel Borders: The Books of Shrigley

Panel Borders: The Books of Shrigley

Concluding a trio of show about comics and fine art practice, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist and fine artist David Shrigley about his work, from self published books of cartoons sold in pubs, to his recent nomination for the Turner Prize. Alex and David also discuss the links between the artist’s cartoons and sculptures, such as his short listed proposal for the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, his work as a spoken word artist and the vagaries of publishing. Originally broadcast Monday 16th December 2013, on Resonance 104.4 FM
