Edmund Ian Grant

Edmund Ian Grant is a critically acclaimed internationally

collected award-winning artist who has been immersed

in his craft for nearly thirty years. He lives and paints in

the Napa Valley at his Art Villa nestled in the Soda Canyon.

His initial foray into the arts was through

music - a saxophone player exploring the world of jazz.

This musical influence gives his work a lyrical rhythmic

quality. His distinctive style is his utilization of vivid

imagination, compelling story telling and innovative

use of color.

Robert P. Metzger PhD. art historian, art critic and Director Emeritus

of the Reading Museum of Pennsylvania experiences Grant’s work

to be “…hauntingly compelling narrative paintings (which) are

psychologically edgy and expressionistic….” his paintings…. recall artists

of the early 20th century such as German Expressionist painter

Ernst Kirchner and school of Paris Spanish sculptor Pablo Gargallo”

While Italian Art Critic, Salvatore Russo, impassions, A Maestro…

prophesies of Edmund Ian Grant are born on canvas achieving

international resonance.”

"His works are characterized by a certain signature of

sensuality with bold and lush colour that leave room

for one's own interpretation. The use of strong colour,

experimentation, new media and the different elements

of lines and sensuality give his work depth and the meaning

behind the work can often only be seen after a second look."
