Nick Grindrod is a British artist, based in Sheffield. He studied Fine Art at theUniversity of Derby and Sheffield College. He has shown widely in Britain and his work is included in numerous private collections.

Working in intense bursts of activity, initial sketches are adapted and reformed in an instinctive, immediate process. Much of the aesthetic decision making is done in the moment – intuitively working with the paintings in ‘real time’. Consequentially, removal of paint and erasure of marks play just as important a role as the application of paint and this is abundantly clear when we look at the finished works.

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