Matthew David Grant, an artist from Dallas, TX who currently resides in Utah. I am the father of four incredible children. Helping my family is the core focus and purpose of my life. I work with acrylics and oils, and use a variety of methods to achieve the realistic aesthetic that I aim for. I am proud to hold an MFA from The Academy of Art in San Francisco with an emphasis in Figure Painting. I began my professional journey in 2000 and have participated in several collaborative projects and exhibited my work worldwide.
I take a unique approach to art and believe in constantly taking risks, as I find inspiration wherever I look. My style focuses on stylizing the details in nature in an abstract way while maintaining a vivid photorealist look. My ultimate goal is to capture and bring to life the images that I and others are interested in.
I am honored to be represented by several prestigious galleries, including Mountain Trails Gallery in Park City, UT, Mountain Trails Gallery in Jackson, WY, Mountain Trails Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, Mockingbird Gallery in Bend, OR, Going to the Sun Gallery in Whitefish, MT, Portrait South in Raleigh, NC, New Portrait South in Greensboro, NC, and Jean Daniel Portraits in Raleigh, NC.
