Mike Grill is an emerging, self-taught Vancouver artist who has been making images with the camera since he was 9 years old. He has had solo exhibitions in Vancouver, most recently at CSA Gallery, and has been recently published in local magazines Subterrain and Ripe.
In meticulous black and white and colour photography, most of which the artist prints himself, Grill has actively engaged the urban landscape, creating in depth investigations of Vancouver back lanes and the city’s many rapidly shifting neighbourhoods like Coal Harbour. When not creating his own pictures he can often be found in the darkroom processing and printing editions at the Jeff Wall Studio in Vancouver.
