"What I'm trying to capture in each of my paintings is a transient moment, that quick explosion of light just before the sunset disappears"
About Grant Dejonge - Impressionist landscape artist
I am a painter/ artist living and working in the
East Sussex village of Plumpton. Working mainly in oil paint, I produce large vivid landscapes that describe the South Downs countryside in broad exciting brushstrokes.
A self taught artist, I have worked in many different disciplines over a 30 year career. From painting large scale club backdrops in the early 90’s to running my own gallery on Brighton seafront’s Artist Quarter, I have honed my skills as a painter.
Working out of my self built studio at my home in the heart of The South Downs National Park, I now specialise in views of the Downs and the countryside that surrounds my home.
In 2017 Network Rail commissioned four murals for permanent display at Plumpton Railway Station.
Finally, I'm thrilled that more of my work can now been seen at Artologie Gallery in the picturesque village of Cuckfield in Sussex, where the owner Wendy kindly describes by work as 'renowned'.
