Pringle, London

David Shrigleys Faux Naive drawings form the current concept at Pringle here in London. Articulated wooden hands drop from the upper plane and on the lower plane they are holding the cut out letters of the name of the Scottish-born illustrator. Known for his popular publications Err and Merry Excema, apparently we are about to see his work everywhere. The background here in a familiar 'Selfridges' trade mark colour with black vinyl lettering and images applied to the glass. The merchandise here is suspended on hangers. This is something that I would never normally recommend doing but in this case I think it works incredibly well. An animation of Shrigley's work is played on a loop in one of the windows some of which is shown below.
