David Shrigley is known for his distinct breed of humorous drawings that are often crude, wry observations of daily life. His work takes a variety of forms besides drawings, including sculptures, animations, and books. By combining a stylistically simple, almost childish technique with dark contents and a unique deadpan approach, Shrigley provides a whimsical commentary on life and death.
For the High Line, Shrigley presents How Are You Feeling?, an iconic work which stands as a reminder of our fears, insecurities, and paranoia, which are so familiar to our contemporary society. Enlarged to gigantic dimensions, the billboard provides a daily memento that we can overcome our worries with humor.
