Grant Kennedy – Artist
Born in Zimbabwe, Grant Kennedy studied art in Johannesburg, South Africa. He moved to London in 1988 and is now a permanent and vibrant part of its exciting art scene.
He describes his work as being about “human beings and other animals”, as half of his work is dedicated to capturing the very essence of the myriad wildlife from his native Zimbabwe with the other half given to studies of the human figure.
Grant is interested in the distortion of his subjects, both animal and human, in order to capture and evoke something of both their nature and their predicament. He is also concerned with the materials and techniques of his art and continues to experiment constantly in the creation of his pictures. His work has been widely exhibited and sold at prestigious auctions all around the world.
The burning desire to perfect his art and find new ways to communicate the feelings that all his subjects evoke in himself, means that he can be found most days working in his London studio, located in the heart of Soho.
