“Living in the Southwest, I have the advantage of being around cattle, longhorns, and working cowboys.”
Raised in Texas, Matthew Grant has always enjoyed art. He recalls spending countless hours drawing superheroes and athletes. His professional artistic journey has included sketching, painting, pastels, photography, oils, and acrylic. Originally focusing on portraiture, he was accepted to The Academy of Art in San Francisco and has an MFA with an emphasis in Figure Painting.
Matthew has his own approach to, and definition of, art. He paints in acrylic and oils, using a number of methods to achieve the realistic aesthetic he’s become known for.
While focusing on the stylized details in nature in an abstract way, he is still able to maintain a vivid photorealistic look. Believing in taking risks, and that inspiration can be found wherever he looks, Matthew’s goal is to capture and bring to life the images he and others are interested in.
Having participated in various collaborative projects, Matthew’s work has been exhibited throughout the world. He currently resides in Texas and Utah.
