Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing Black x David Shrigley
The Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing, made in collaboration with Third Drawer Down and British artist David Shrigley, made a splash across the globe in 2017 by going viral courtesy of a single Tweet. We realised that the lonely swan needed a mate. Swans only have one partner for their entire life, after all.
Third Drawer Down and artist David Shrigley birthed this piece, a black Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing, in early May 2019. We're calling it, this ridiculous swan will be making waves.
Named lovingly by David Shrigley himself, the statuesque swan-thing stands at 35 inches tall and comprises all that is to love about Shrigley's charismatic work, while also being pool-ready.
About The Artist
David Shrigley is a British artist who has come to prominence through his drawings, publications, and sculptural works. His drawings have a kind of throwaway beauty featuring monster children, idiots, aliens and bad parents. Full of twisted lists and exchanges, Shrigley is a TDD favourite both for his angst about modern living, his disappointments, and his cynicism.
