Nigel Grimmer was born in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. He completed his Masters in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 1998. Since graduating, Grimmer has exhibited throughout the UK and has shown work in Germany, France and Switzerland.
Nigel Grimmer’s art practice explores the relationship between public and personal imagery and its influence on the production of identity. An archive of ephemera from popular culture, including comic books, action figures, joke shop props, pop songs, snapshots and film stills, is drawn into his personal narratives and then returned to the public realm. Rendered both strange and familiar, Grimmer presents an alternative to ‘mainstream’ culture, an acknowledgement of his experience by the conveyance of a unique sensibility, a subculture, formed by the selection and editing of this material.
