grimes ken


Ken Grimes was born in 1947 in New York, USA, and moved to Connecticut with his family a few years later, where he still lives today. Grimes became interested in the occult and the paranormal at an early age. In the mid-1980s, Grimes used his art to document discoveries, experiences and speculations in this field and to make them accessible to the world: minimalist white figures and symbols as well as texts on a black background. His works can be found in the Milwaukee Art Museum and in the American Folk Art Museum, both in the USA, among others.
