Dale Grimshaw

Dale Grimshaw is a painter and street artist originally from Lancashire. During a difficult childhood, his drawing and painting became extremely important to him. He developed his skills at college, firstly with an Art Foundation course at Blackburn College and later he studied fine art to degree level at Middlesex University in London.

He has had several solo shows in London and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Berlin, Paris, New York, Stockholm and Rome. He is also widely recognised as one of the most powerful artists in today’s Street Art scene. Over the years, he has been invited to various festivals nationally and internationally as well as painting many iconic walls across London, where he lives.

​Dale’s work is boldly figurative and is inspired by his strongly held humanitarian beliefs. However, this political message is always achieved by an emphasis on powerful direct emotions and a deep empathy for his subjects.

Dale continues to support the work of the Free West Papua campaign, which is opposed to the illegal occupation of West Papua by Indonesia.
