Born and raised in Africa, Lucas Grant expresses his devotion and emotional connection to his homeland by creating these incredibly gorgeous paintings of wildlife, including animals such as zebras, elephants, oxes and antelopes.

He paints these works using ink, charcoal and oil, aiming to reflect the natural habitat that these animals reside in. An excerpt from Visual News features a statement from Grant saying, "I strive to create an emotion around the artwork, not just a photographic reproduction. I will always be an African, and I will always keep this wild continent close to my heart, and close to my work."

His illustrations are extremely realistic and are modeled off of photographs that he has personally taken, which adds versatility to his portfolio. These paintings are visually serene, raw and alluring, beautifully showcasing these majestic animals in their natural habitat.
