About Grant Notten

 
 
  • Biography
    I am a contemporary artist living in South West England in a beautiful rural place near Dartmoor National Park. Born in South Africa, I had a wild upbringing on a game reserve where I encountered a very different way of life. I recalls fond memories of having many exciting close encounters with lion, leopard, elephant and other big game. I had the fortune of learning about the bush and tracking from legendary Shangaan tracker, Joe Matabula. It is here where I developed a deep love for the natural world, its primal beauty, smells, sounds and energy, and it is here where I first was inspired to paint as a young boy. 

    I have worked with renown artists, and over time developed my own unique style. I paint predominantly in oil and acrylic and use a combination of brush, pallet knife and sponge work to create depth, movement and texture. I am fascinated with light.

    "Painting is an exciting process for me, a feeling of being on the edge and discovering what emerges in the process. I totally loose myself in this timeless space. It is my aim to bring this freedom and beauty through into my work to create an uplifting atmosphere in a space much like the experience I have in nature.

    A few years ago my wife and children and I embarked on an epic adventure, and for a year we lived in the wildest parts of Southern Africa, traveling and living in forests, deserts, bushveld and caves. This experience reshaped our lives and deepened our appreciation for the wilderness.  I have now been moved by the natural beauty of Dartmoor, the forests, steams and Moors where we now lives. This ancient landscape has stirred something deep inside of me. 

    "I would love to see the preservation and expansion of the worlds wild places".

    Grant Notten has paintings in private collections in several countries around the world.
