David Shrigley at Sketch

In 2011, the London New French cuisine restaurant Sketch commissioned an interior from Martin Creed, who created a tessellated floor made of 96 different marbles and purchased new cutlery that ranged from high end design pieces to dollar store purchases.

The restaurant, which covers two floors of a converted 18th century site in Conduit Street, Mayfair, now follows that project with a new environment by David Shrigley. With the walls newly painted pink, Shrigley has installed 200 framed drawings, which is reportedly the largest group of his works ever exhibited.

He has also created a new range of white ceramic tableware. The website offers no clues as to how to purchase these, but it has been suggested that they will be available for sale.

Hear Shrigley discuss the project at the Huffington Post, here.
