Will Redgrove is a London based muralist, community artist and educator.
Will was born in Hackney, growing up in the vibrant, multicultural community of east London. It is within this colourful and diverse environment that Will developed his passion for cultural histories, intricate identities and interlacing relationships.
He studied Fine Art at the University of the West of England, absorbing the energetic music and street art scene of Bristol and developing an understanding of the role of art within social movements and activism. Will returned to east London where he would end up studying Typography and Graphic Design at University of the Arts London.
Will uses collaborative and co-creative processes throughout his projects utilising workshops and group experimentation to develop ideas into a finished product. It is important to him that public art is created/designed for/with those who will use it the most - the public.
"Having agency in the creation of public art, with a message that's genuine, creates shared identities, and improves community cohesion, self-efficacy and wellbeing. I want all my projects to have that legacy."
His style takes inspiration from by vintage advertising and tattoos, pop art and folk art, often playing with themes around symbols, alphabets, the natural world, cultural histories, myths and fairy tales. Storytelling and communication is at the heart of all his work.
