Nick Grindrod

Contemporary Artist

About Nick

Nick Grindrod is a British artist, based in Sheffield, UK. He studied Fine Art at the University of Derby. 

Boldly abstract in nature, Grindrod’s paintings skilfully layer strict geometric forms with gestural painterly handling. Working in intense bursts of activity, initial sketches are adapted and reformed in an instinctive, immediate process. 

Grindrod’s paintings are often overtly playful, but their immediate aesthetic appeal conceals a subtlety and rigorous commitment to a practice that is deeply important to the artist. 

Bold, flat, graphic colour fields sit alongside abraded, distressed surfaces. Swift, gestural marks contrast sharp, measured lines. 

Much of the aesthetic decision-making is done in the moment – intuitively working with the paintings in ‘real time’. Consequently, removal of paint and erasure of marks play just as important a role as the application of paint, which is evident in his finished works. 

“The decisions that are made in the moment can be both rewarding and disappointing but all lead to the truth in the end… I feel that this is the only way that I can truly create something unique.“ 

Grindrod’s innate ability to balance a composition and a palette is such that his completed works are undoubtedly humming and vibrating with an excited energy. 

Grindrod shows work internationally, with works featured in numerous private collections. In 2022 Grindrod collaborated with a UK fashion brand with an exclusive limited edition clothes range.
