Grant McGrath is a visual artist from Belmont, California currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Grant works in mediums of acrylic and charcoal. His work is largely driven by trying to find a balance between order and chaos, in both visual representation and narrative.

His roots in visual expression stem from his father, an architect and builder, who gave Grant drawing lessons as a child. Grant is self-taught, taking inspiration and guidance from many forms of visual art including film, industrial design, fashion photography, comic books and record covers. Among many others, he sites Pablo Picasso and German Expressionists like Max Beckman, Franz Marc and Lyonel Feininger as highly influential to his work.

Grant worked for 10 years in advertising with roles in strategy, data, and creative. He has been a full time artist since 2018 exhibiting in New York City and having both private and public collections in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
