David Shrigley is a British artist whose rudimentary but unmistakable line is used to observe his surroundings with incomparable irony, often accompanied by an absurd and irreverent sentence to challenge us and get our attention. Humour—be it naive or noir—is his instrument of choice and wielded with great precision. While drawing is at the center of his practice, the artist also works across an extensive range of media including sculpture, large-scale installation, animation, painting, photography and music.
Each year, artists receive carte blanche to express their vision of the Maison Ruinart, to share its heritage, savoir-faire and the excellence of its cuvées. His mischievous art sheds a new light on the vineyard, its heritage and craftsmanship. Shrigley’s sharp eye studies the curious and well-kept secrets of champagne making. Shrigley’s artworks act as a bubbly eye-opener to the environmental concerns that inspire the first Champagne house.
