This month Nanaimo artist Grant Leier is displaying new work at Art 10 Gallery.
The exhibit includes paintings in his major styles: wildlife, traditional illustrations and vintage graphics.
Leier said in his work, no matter the imagery, “colour is of the utmost importance.”
“I really like taking a lot of liberties with colour, using colour in an unexpected way and pushing the boundaries,” he said. “I’ve never, ever made any attempt to make something realistic. I just think it’s a lot more interesting to go crazy.”
