Trevor Grimshaw

Born in Hyde, Greater Manchester in 1947, Trevor Grimshaw studied at the Stockport College of Art.
He worked in charcoal, pencil and gouache as well as oils, which gave his mostly monochrome, stylised pictures of the northern industrial landscape a smoky, atmospheric look.

L.S. Lowry bought three of Grimshaw’s works from an early exhibition.
In addition to industrial landscapes, Grimshaw’s pictures covered a wide range of topics. These included construction sites, monuments and steam engines, for which he had a passion.
In 2001, he tragically died in a house fire having become a recluse and an alcoholic.
