Grant Hansen

Chicagoan artist, teacher, brother, son, uncle, friend, 

& dog dad



I work primarily in oil and ink, but I love to incorporate unusual material like honey and polyurethane to suspend pigment for added dimension and texture. I am interested in natural changes to materials over time and I embrace chance and unpredictable outcomes.  


I look to create sculptures that give people the chance to interact and experience a connection with the artwork. From two person kaleidoscopes to paintings that invite the viewer to touch.


My paintings simultaneously reach back into the history of art with a nod to the allover paintings of the abstract expressionists while looking out into the cosmos and drawing inspiration from satellite imagery of distant galaxies and our own home planet.
