Grant Searl

Profile

Grant is a mainly self taught artist. Born in 1962 in the North West of England, Grant discovered his need to create at an early age. He has developed his unique style over many years, and is greatly influenced by the giants of the surrealist movement such as Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte and Giorgio De Chirico. However there are also echoes in his work of the more traditional landscape painters like Turner, Wilson and Friedrich.

Grant’s style is a blend of surrealism and traditional landscape painting depicting a peculiar dream like world of expansive gardens, utopian summers of generous forms and rich hues, or an illusion underpinned by something altogether more sinister!

Grant admires the work of contemporary painters such as David Inshaw and Peter Sowa who have had an important influence on the direction his art has taken.
