Tim Grosvenor was born in 1958 in Tananarive, Madagascar. He returned with his family to England in 1966 where he undertook his further education. He studied Fine Art at the University of Reading where his tutors included Sir Terry Frost, Rita Donagh and Richard Wilson. He was awarded the Owen Ridley Prize for drawing and completed his degree in 1981.
After a period of exhibiting his work in locations such as the Hexagon, Reading, Whapping Galleries and the Seven Dials Gallery in London he decided to follow a career in social sciences where he was regarded as one of the leading experts on human behaviour and mobility. During this time he was responsible for a large range of projects for both public and private sector clients including: Visa International, The Home Office, UK, The European Community, British Telecom, BAA, London Underground, London First and the Channel Tunnel. He has carried out a wide range of projects in the UK, France, The Netherlands, South Africa, the USA, and Germany. He has given many papers at international conferences on creative thinking and research techniques.
However, he always wanted to return to his creative roots. In 1998 he decided to trim his successful career and return to the art world. He moved to the South West of France where he set up a small gallery to show both his own work and that of other local and international artists. During this time he has concentrated on developing his work to regain a maturity of subject matter and style.
In 2007 he moved with his family to Switzerland where he has continued to develop his work. He has exhibited his work in public and private galleries in the UK, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany. In early 2007 he had the honour of holding a solo exhibition of his work in the Flemish Parliament in Brussels. He also held a one man show in the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France. Tim has work in private collections throughout Europe and the United States For five years he was the artistic director for “Fete du N‘ouef” St Antonin Noble Val. This major event attracts artists from a wide area and involves artists from across Europe.
