Jeff Gant's Gallery

Jeff Gant

Jeff Gant is an Australian representational oil painter and dry media artist with a strong foundation in pen and ink. He was born in Toowoomba and lived in Brisbane for many years before moving to New South Wales. Largely self-taught he pursued life as a draftsman after completing his secondary education which exposed him to pen and ink as an artistic medium. During this formative period he dabbled in oils preferring rather to work with pencil, charcoal, pen and ink then pastel and oils.

Always interested in art he names the work of Rembrandt, Streeton, Sandorfi, Girotto as major influences and more recently Scott Waddell, David Gray and David Jon Kassan to name but a few. Ever desiring to learn more of the craft he is an avid consumer of video master class artist workshops and has attended a number of hands on artist workshops.

In 2009 after working as a marketing coordinator producing computer generated print and online advertising and marketing material he commenced a full time art career. Still with a strong interest in dry media he now pursues oil painting with a passion. His repertoire of subjects includes landscapes, still life and portrait/figure studies. He is currently developing his growing interest in portraiture while feeding a fascination with mixed media artwork.

From early 2015 to 2017 he was Artist in Residence at the Caldera Art Gallery Murwillumbah. From his studio located in the M-Arts Precinct in Murwillumbah he is currently painting and providing art tuition in a variety of mediums for a growing student base.
