‘Heroin And Cocaine Shakers’ are a set of salt and pepper shakers by contemporary artist David Shrigley.


Acclaimed British artist David Shrigley is known for his small-scale sketches, usually rendered in simple, black ink, which play with our expectations of figurative skill and expertise. Suffused with deadpan humour, Shrigley’s naive images are usually accompanied by small sections of wry text, which intensify the offbeat naivety of his unique aesthetic.



‘Heroin And Cocaine Shakers’ takes the form of simple salt and pepper shakers. Yet, in true Shrigley style, nothing is quite what it seems: the clean lines of the plain ceramic blocks have been gently distorted, while each shaker has been printed with a single word: ‘Cocaine’ on one, and ‘Heroin’ on the other, in childlike scrawl. Imaginative and unconventional, ’Heroin And Cocaine Shakers’ perfectly captures the idiosyncratic playfulness of Shrigley’s signature style.


About The Artist - David Shrigley

Shrigley lives and works in Brighton, UK and is famous for his humourous drawings and hand-written text works. We love the way his artwork is both relatable and funny, turning simple everyday encounters into comedic and often satirical commentary. 


Shrigley studied Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art. He has exhibited globally, with solo shows across Europe, the United States of America, Asia, New Zealand, and Australia. His group exhibitions are similarly geographically diverse, with shows in the United Kingdom, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and the United States of America. As a prolific artist, Shrigley has been nominated for the 2013 Turner Prize and awarded an honorary doctorate by De Montford University in Leicester, UK. In addition, he was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to visual arts. 

We’ve been working with David Shrigley since 2017.
