Born in 1994 in Illinois, Grant Perry is a realist painter who works in traditional methods. From a young age, Grant developed an appreciation for the classical arts, learning to play the violin and piano and visiting art museums. Intrigued by the technical aspect of classical works, Grant sought the challenge of working in a similar manner. His parents encouraged his artistic pursuits and, after graduating high school in 2012, Grant moved to New York City to attend Grand Central Atelier (GCA), where he completed the four-year core program. For two years, Grant was a resident artist at GCA; he now works out of his Dallas-based studio.
