After achieving an MA at the Royal Academy, Grahame moved to Pembrokeshire in the 1980s. Since then Grahame has painted and exhibited in Pembrokeshire, although he has maintained a London presence, running several one-man exhibitions in the capital including shows at the Whitechapel Gallery, the New Grafton, Ifield in Chelsea and The South London Gallery. Grahame has also exhibited his work at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Grahame’s work is now being increasingly sought after by serious collectors and many pieces are finding their way into important permanent collections, not only in the UK but also internationally. Grahame was commissioned by the National Trust to paint the aftermath of the Great Storm of 1987, which affected Britain’s landscape so dramatically. The National Trust subsequently presented one of these paintings to HRH The Prince of Wales.
In common with some of our greatest painters, Grahame prefers to paint ‘in situ’, often battling the elements. He transfers his sensory experience directly on to canvas with an array of colours projecting Pembrokeshire’s unique light in an exciting style reminiscent of Monet, Sickert and early Turner.
