Dale is an English Street Artist born in the North of England (Lancashire). Dale had a difficult childhood and it was during this period that he began to draw. Art became his sanctuary and escape. Artistic expression then became the most important factor in his life. During his adolescence he enjoyed graffing the walls of his city whilst learning graphic arts at school. He then attended the art classes of Blackburn College. Later he studied fine art to degree level at Middlesex University in London.
Over the last 10 years Dale Grimshaw has developed a successful gallery career. Five significant solo shows in the Signal Gallery in London and also exhibited his work alongside other street artists in Berlin, USA and France. His artwork has strong psychological narrative message, that depicts alienation, loss, conflict and isolation. Both on a personal and political level. One of his most important and successful shows at the Signal Gallery in London was entitled “Semi Detached” and documented some of the troubled events of his childhood. This exhibition was featured in the UK national newspaper, The Independent.
Dale’s first urban artwork consisted of elaborate and powerful woodcut prints which have been pasted up all over Europe and Brazil, which can be seen in several international street art books and magazines.
More recently he focuses on large scale murals in UK .
His incredible talent has attracted a great deal of favourable attention and has led to him being invited to paint in cities across Europe. You can be certain of one thing, in the very near future Dale Grimshaw’s artworks will cover the grey walls of Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, …….. Walls will act as canvases and allow Dale to touch our souls with his artistic emotions!
