Dave The Chimp
Dave the Chimp has been riding skateboards since the mid 1980's, painting on found wood and making fanzines since the mid 1990's, and working in the streets since 1998.
He still does all these things, as well as exhibiting his art in galleries and museums world wide, working as an illustrator for a variety of clients, directing pop videos, compiling books, and curating exhibitions. Dave has exhibited alongside the leading names in the urban art scene, including Banksy, Blu, Miss Van, Swoon, Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, and Zevs. He was the first UK artist to have his own artist model shoe created by Vans, and a book of his work (Part Of Rebellion 2 - Dave the Chimp) was published by Publikat in 2009.

May 7th 2019 at Gallery 1:1 - 31, rue de Strasbourg
We are super pleased to announce that Dave the Chimp will have his own solo exhibition here at Gallery 1:1! During our Grand Opening in presence of the artist, we showed his work and people quickly became fans and due to popular demand it only made sense to have Dave the Chimp do his own solo here with us at 1:1. The spirit of his exhibition as the title already gives away, will have a science feel to it and that’s all we will say for now.
Save the date and stay tuned!
