Trevor Grimshaw 1947-2001

Trevor Grimshaw was born in Hyde, Cheshire in 1947 and studied at the Stockport College of Art from 1963 to 1968. He developed a unique style working in oils charcoal and graphite to produce atmospheric, stylised images of the Northern industrial landscape, mainly in monochrome.
Grimshaw exhibited widely in the UK (including at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy in the 1970's) as well as in the US and Germany. His work was included in the private collections of LS Lowry, Edward Heath, the Warburton Family and Gerald Kaufman.

He is represented in a number of public collections, including The Tate Gallery, Salford Art Gallery, Stockport Art Gallery, Bury Art Gallery, Astley Cheetham, also Granada Television, North West Arts and the B.B.C. hold his work.
He illustrated "The Singing Street", a book of poems by Mike Harding and executed a series of lithographs for Christies Contemporary Art.
By the time of his tragic death, in a house fire in 2001, Grimshaw had become an alcoholic and a reclusive figure. He held his last show in 1996 and in 2004 a major retrospective exhibition was held at Stockport Art Gallery in celebration of his life and work.
