His masterful interpretation of wildlife subjects made Grant an artist of stature respected worldwide. His paintings have been internationally exhibited and collected since 1970. His technical perfection and ability to capture the look and feel of the African wilderness and the wildlife it supports were capabilities that could only be acquired through a love of Africa, best described by his own words: "Here in this magnificent setting, which we should all do our utmost to protect, the finely balanced day-to-day drama of survival unfolds."
Grant's paintings are infused with dramatic light and charged with atmosphere. His subjects, with poses so characteristic of the species they represent, reveal the hand of a masterful artist; one who possessed a unique understanding of and genuine concern for the earth's endangered wildlife
