From 18 January 2018, acclaimed British artist David Shrigley is replacing his 239 black and white drawings with 91 colourful new works.
This new body of works encompasses Shrigleys distinctive drawing style imbued with dry humour, which cut to the point of human nature, making satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions.
Recurring themes pervade his story telling, capturing child-like views of the world; the perspective of aliens and monsters or the compulsive habits of an eavesdropper shouting out loud.

India Mahdavi re-modelled the pink interior which, at once avant-garde, is the world renowned pink dcor now recognised as The Gallery, creating once again a unique backdrop for Shrigleys new works.
For me, pink is more than a colour, its a mood - Pink has become my flag - A way to express strength and fragility in one colour and in one space - India says.

Shrigleys first series of works followed the inaugural artist conceived restaurant commission for the Gallery by Martin Creeds in 2012.
The largest presentation of original David Shrigley drawings to date opened at sketch on 6th June 2014. The exhibition continues on the restaurant tables: Shrigley has understood the dining table as an auxiliary exhibition space with ceramic tableware, manufactured by British heritage brand Caverswall, that features Shrigleys distinctive mordant drawings and texts, in a holistic interaction with Gagnaires food.
The meal itself becomes a site-specific sculptural work that references sketchs location in the heart of Londons West End and invites diners to respond with their own thoughts and reactions.

The drawings are available for purchase from the Stephen Friedman Gallery

India Mahdavi: Born in Tehran to an Egyptian mother and an Iranian father, a childhood spent between Massachussetts, New York City, Heidelberg, Vence and Paris, India Mahdavi is like her style: polyglot and polychrome. Mahdavi graduated in architecture (DPLG), industrial design, graphic design and furniture design, before becoming Christian Liaigre's artistic director for 7 years.
She opened her studio in 1999, rue Las Cases in Paris and worked on her first projects -residential and public- in London, New York, Miami, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Milan, Sydney, Mexico.

Her signature has become a reference for renowned hotels and restaurants such as Condesa DF in Mexico, on Rivington in New York, Monte Carlo Beach in Monaco, the Coburg bar and Hlne Darroze's restaurant at the Connaught in London, suites at the Claridge's in London, Htel Thoumieux in Paris, Htel du Clotre in Arles, Caf Franais in Paris (Place de la Bastille) in collaboration with M/M (Paris) and L'Apoge Courchevel co-signed with Joseph Dirand. Recently named to Architectural Digest's 2014 AD100 list, which honors the world's top talents in architecture and design, and granted a special award for international creators by AD Spain's AD Award 2014, India Mahdavi is currently working on residential projects and restaurants throughout the world.

The exhibition continues on the restaurant tables:
Shrigley has understood the dining table as an auxiliary exhibition space, a platform for the presentation of new work by himself and Master Chef, Pierre Gagnaire.

The work comprises new ceramic tableware featuring Shrigley’s distinctive mordant drawings and texts, in a holistic interaction with Gagnaire’s food.
The meal itself becomes a site-specific sculptural work that references sketch’s location in the heart of London and invites diners to respond with their own thoughts and reactions.

In addition, fashion designer Richard Nicoll has been enlisted to create bespoke uniforms for the Gallery restaurant staff to wear. For the girls, the design is a play on Nicoll's signature T-shirt dress silhouette; for the boys, a smart, grey boiler-suit.

Richard Nicoll

"For the sketch uniform project I liked the idea of creating elegant and utilitarian uniforms for the staff that reference a diner look but in a very modern and sophisticated way" - Richard Nicoll - 1977-2016 - His life a beautiful memory, his absence a silent grief.
