Grant Petrey’s creative practice covers time based media in response to drawing, curatorial projects and creative community programs that encompass pedagogic and sociological research. After gaining diverse experience as a teacher, course leader and as Head of Department, in 2010 he joined the School of Fine Arts as a Senior Lecturer at the University for the Creative Arts, UK, teaching theory and practice on a range of courses. He is also a visiting adjunct lecturer at Cornish College of Arts, Seattle, USA, and has worked extensively with Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK.
He continues to develop his creative practice as an artist and integrates curatorial and education programming with community arts projects as well as creative industry contacts. He has presented his research and work internationally and early painting work is part of the National Collection of Great Britain & Northern Ireland. His fine art practice explores drawing via themes of temporality, memory and surface within experimental animation.
