The humble tea towel is one of Third Drawer Down's signature artist products. A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, it can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as an affordable artwork for your home. Originally, these tea towels were printed in a limited edition of 1000. Due to their popularity, they have been re-released by Third Drawer Down as an open edition.
Large Fancy Room Filled With Cr*p was going to be the title for Shrigley's first retrospective show at the Hayward Gallery in London until it was changed to Brain Activity.
About the Artist
Shrigley is a Glasgow-based artist whose drawing style evolved as a reaction to the seriousness of the art he was expected to produce at art school. He bases his work on intuition rather than long-winded theory. Shrigley is also a self-editor, ripping up whatever he thinks doesn't work into teeny-weeny pieces so that they can't be recycled. He holds onto the things that surprise him and make him laugh.
