IRONLAK - EP I: DALE GRIMSHAW
In the first episode of the Ironlak street art series, we see Dale Grimshaw create a mural in Camden.
Dale takes most of his inspiration and motivation from the struggles of untouched tribes, particularly from Papa New Guinea, but for this project, he takes a different direction to his usual mural work, exploring his own routs and looking into his own past and Celtic ancestry. This film provides an insight into the man who has become one of the UK's most prolific street art muralists.
Motivated by faces and expressions, Dale looks for a tough exterior and the lesser seen, straying away from the "Loreal model" types.
This is the first episode in a series we have developed with Ironlak - other episodes lined up will include Amara Por Dios and Inkie (Tom Bingle).
