GRANT SIMON ROGERS (*1964) trained at Portsmouth College of Art and is devoted to art
education and visual literacy for all ages. He is a visiting lecturer at the National Gallery, at
Christie’s Education, at the Central Saint Martins – University of Arts, and other museums and
cultural institutions in London and across Continental Europe. The artist lives and works in
London and Berlin.

Among the many influences that inspire Grant’s works are a blend of storytelling – from William
Blake to Philip Pullman – and all forms of visual art from its early beginnings until now. Some of
the artist’s particularly strong influences are the films of Powell & Pressburger and Akira
Kurosawa.
