A fifth-generation Haligonian, Mark Grantham received his Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees from Dalhousie University and went on to study architecture at the Technical University of Nova Scotia, from which he holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies degree as well as a Masters in Architecture.
Mark has been painting full time since 1996. His annual solo exhibits became legendary for the excitement they created, with collectors lining up for hours in order to secure the painting of their choice. Mark’s work can be found in private and corporate collections, as well as the Nova Scotia and Canada Council Art Banks.
Mark Grantham says about his work: “An an artist, I am inspired by my surroundings – the parks, streets, and buildings of Halifax, as well as the Nova Scotian countryside. These are places that I have known my entire life, and yet my experience of them is always fresh and new, transformed as they are by changing light, weather, and the cycle of seasons.”
