Image Gallery with DataGrid

Hi Experts!
I'm trying to create a little image gallery with the DataGrid. I would like to have 4 column DataGrid with multiple images on the page. I tried creating 4 Template Columns with image Eval("Name","Images/{0}") code expression but I end up with 4 same images per line.
What expression can I use or what can I do to make sure that images in the row do not repeat because right now my DataGrid looks like this:

imageA   |  imageA   |  imageA   |  imageA   |  
imageB   |  imageB   |  imageB   |  imageB   |  
imageC   |   imageC   |   imageC   |   imageC   |  
imageD   |   imageD   |   imageD   |   imageD   |  

and I need it to look:

imageA   |   imageB   |   imageC   |   imageD   |  
imageE   |   imageF    |   imageG  |   imageH    |  
imageI   |   imageJ     |   imageK   |   imageL    |  
imageM   |   imageN   |   imageO   |   imageP   |  

Hope it's clear enough.
Thank you in advance.
