GUY HADDON GRANT UK, b. 1986

Guy Haddon Grant's monochromatic sculptures and drawings lie at the boundary between abstraction and figuration.

 

Haddon Grant (1986), born in London, started his studies in Camberwell College of Art before moving to Florence, Italy for two years to study the renaissance masters and their techniques. He works in charcoal, candle soot, wax, plaster, steel and wood; creating enigmatic works with a narrative that informs one another.

 

Haddon Grant has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions notably the Bloomberg New Contemporaries at the ICA and the Liverpool Biennial. He has also exhibited at the British Figure at Flowers Gallery and has held two solo shows Apophenia at the Royal College of Art and Dust and Shadows at Karavil Contemporary.
