Bio

Joey Grimm was born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in De Soto, Kansas. He became interested in making moving sculptures as a result of tinkering with cars and learning how engines operate. Over the past ten years, Grimm has worked for kinetic sculptors Jim Woodfill, Graham Lane, and Mac MacClanahan on projects ranging from small kinetic sculptures to producing high speed art cars. Grimm recived his BFA from the Kansas City Art institute in 2010, and went on to obtain his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Delaware. After completing his studies, Grimm plans to start a studio in Brooklyn, New York.
