Gary Grimshaw is a graphic artist of exceptional talent who has an extraordinary history and character; meeting life on his own terms and often against the establishment. He was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1946 and graduated from nearby Lincoln Park High School. His Grandfather was a designer at GM’s Fisher Body Oldsmobile plant, his Dad a mechanical engineer. Marjory Grimshaw instilled a love of books and music in her young son Gary who loved to draw cars and comics and considered himself a writer. The oldest with two younger sisters, Gary left home at an early age but continues to be close to his sisters. He has created art work professionally since the age of twenty – that’s four decades of music-related graphic art and counting. In 2011 just months after returning home from a serious health odyssey, Gary worked on the Concert of Colors poster and several PJ’s Lager House designs. In 2012 he began a licensing of his work in earnest; partnering with Detroit Urban Design Studios. Laura Grimshaw, his wife of twenty years, closely contributes to keep Gary’s past body of work in the public eye.
