“Free West Papua” by Dale Grimshaw in Camden Town, London

The strength and the beauty of the tribal people is the centre of Dale Grishaw’s work, who tries to capture the alienation and frustration as also the power of an ancient tribe. The attention to the details, as the make-up and the decorative elements reminds us to a completely different world compared to the Western society. Grimshaw prefers bright and intense colours which, somehow, are connected to the visual advertising, to generate an awareness about the west domination. In Camden, Grimshaw uses his art to support the solidarity with the people of West Papua that are illegally occupied by Indonesian Government since 1963. He realizes a portrait of a Papuan tribesman shaking his fist, being ready to resist, fusing this image with West Papua flag through the air-brushed effect.
