Alistair Grant was a familiar feature of the London art scene.Best known as a printmaker, his entire teaching career was spent in the printmaking department at the Royal College of Art. Over the years he taught printmaking to many who were to become leading UK artists. Grant was at the top of his profession and a groundbreaker in his explorations of mixed media techniques.Grant was also a wonderful painter.In the early 1980s his imagery had turned to an open expressionist style, with sweeping brushmarks and the introduction of new vibrant colour. Inspired by the Normandy coastline around Etaples and Le Touquet Grant would create cyphers from the shapes and forms in the landscape, which he would offset against curtains of colour.
