Andrew Grant’s paintings are inspired by the four elements; earth, air, fire and water. His current work explores how women interact with these elements, using the idea and symbolism of a garden to tie the concepts together. His representational works integrate surrealism, myth and legend to depict women in meditative states that invite the viewer into the narrative.
Andrew Maurice Grant was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica and migrated to the United States at an early age. Immersing himself in creative outlets all his life, led him to taking classes in Art History at the University of Central Florida and eventually taking formal art classes at Crealdé School of Art. While there, he gravitated towards the classes and workshops taught by Terry Norris who specialized in oil painting. Grant then temporarily relocated to study with Carol Broman and it was there, he was introduced to more rigorous techniques of drawing and painting.
He has participated in numerous group exhibitions and solo exhibitions and currently teaches at Crealdé School of Art. He lives in Orlando with his wife and two children.
