This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Graham Gillmore (1963)

A painter, draftsman, and printmaker, Graham Gillmore was born in North Vancouver, British Columbia and raised in West Vancouver (neighbouring municipalities). He's lived in New York City since 1986, and currently divides his time between there and his studio in the remote (unincorporated) southern B.C. town of Winlaw, about 250 miles east of Vancouver.

His mediums include oil, enamel, acrylic, pencil, graphite, ink, tar, found objects*, collage*, etching*, drypoint*, mixed mediums and assemblage*. His primary subjects are social commentary and abstraction - shape, color, texture. His styles include Surrealism*, Pop Art* and Expressionism*, however his best-known style is Conceptual Art*, of this, the AskART images titled "One Bird Two Stones, 2001", "Penmanship Is Queen Of The Arts, 2002", and "TAKE CARE" are good illustrations.

Gillmore describes himself as self taught, however he is a graduate of the Emily Carr College of Art and Design (now - Emily Carr University of Art + Design), Vancouver, which he attended from 1981 to 1985.

His works have been exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery (Young Romantics - 1985 and Paint: a psychedelic primer - 2007); the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT (Pop Surrealism - 1998); Tate Modern, London, England (Learn to Read - 2007)"; and at numerous other public and private galleries in Canada, the USA, Mexico and Europe.

According to the Canadian Heritage Information Network* and individual museum websites his works are in the permanent collections of the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery (University of British Columbia, Vancouver), Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto), Museum of Modern Art (New York City), Simon Fraser University Gallery (Burnaby, B.C.), University of Lethbridge Art Gallery (Lethbridge, Alberta) and the Vancouver Art Gallery (B.C.).

Among Gillmore's awards are Canada Council* grants in 1986 and 1987.
