Neil Grant is a representational sculptor creating figures of rebellion in plaster, bronze and resin.
Inspirations include Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Jean-Antoine Houdon, Banksy.
Biography: At its core, Grant’s art is about rebelling in big ways and small ways. It’s about little guys standing up to bullies and about sly grins in the face of misused authority. But it’s also about his daughter’s ironclad belief that she can change the world for the better.
While Grant’s work challenges authority, it’s not anarchic. He tells his stories through accurately rendered sculptures. “I believe change is about creating and following ‘good rules’ and I deliberately bind myself in the rules of anatomical correctness and the accurate rendering of my subjects. I want my audience to appreciate technique while seeking the story in my work”.
