Grimmer is good at pop pathos.” Robert Clark, The Guardian

It’s the sort of art you might see if you mistakenly went back to a serial killer’s house after a nightclub, mistaking him for ‘a real dish’.” Grace Dent, TV Times

Grimmer’s work is witty and a touch sad, needless to say, we love it.” Marcelo de Santos, Attitude

He mischievously pokes fun at mass media stereotypes” Robert Clark, The Guardian

  1. Fabulous work – love the concepts in both albums! Nigel Lightening Fields, Craig 3 and Ivan could be my favorites (especially Ivan). Really great work. The review quote by Grace Dent kinda sums it up for me:

    “It’s the sort of art you might see if you mistakenly went back to a serial killer’s house after a nightclub, mistaking him for ‘a real dish’.”
