He was born in Wandsworth, London on 23 June 1902, the youngest of three children of Ernest Daintrey, a solicitor and his wife Lucy Mary (née Blagdon). Following education at Charterhouse, where he developed his artistic skills, he studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in 1920-24. Daintrey gathered a wide circle of friends, who included the artists Augustus John, Nina Hamnett and Rex Whistler. He continued studies in the École du Louvre and L'Académie de la Grande Chaumière, Paris.
He shared his first exhibition with Paul Nash at Dorothy Warren's Gallery in 1928. During the World War II, he served widely abroad. He held shows at his studio to promote his work. He worked for the Punch magazine as an art critic in 1953-1961, and from the late 1960s taught part-time at the City and Guilds of London Art School.
Daintrey had successful exhibitions at South London Art Gallery, Michael Parkin Fine Art and Sally Hunter Fine Art.
The British Museum and Imperial War Museum hold examples of his work.
