grant hacking

New England artist Grant Hacking was born and raised in South Africa and resided there until the age of 25 so he still experiences great pleasure in depicting the diverse animal life native to the African continent.


Living in this exotic location provided Hacking the opportunity to travel far and wide during the early years of his career researching material for his innovative wildlife compositions. However, a move to the United States in 1990 coupled with his dedication to a wife and two growing daughters motivated the artist to begin focusing on the more localized subject matter as well.


His oeuvre now includes figurative work, architecture, coastal scenes, and landscapes, especially those close to his home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
