About me

Niall Grant is an Illustrator with a hand in fine-drawing and traditional mark-making. He creates emotive scenes of wistful characters and creatures, employing folklore and cryptic symbolism to express ideas of sensitivity, apathy, repressed energy and escape. Niall has worked to create album covers, posters and editorial artwork. Some clients include Sony and Universal Records. Published work has been sold in the Tate Modern bookshop and worldwide. Exhibited Artworks have been shown in London, Berlin and Japan.
