Education

Nicolas Granger-Taylor was educated at Latymer Upper School, Hammersmith. He began his art training at Kingston Polytechnic (1981–82), followed by a three-year degree course in Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic (1982–85). He took a Postgraduate Diploma in Painting the Royal Academy Schools, London (1987–90).

Critical reception

Nicholas Usherwood in the RA Magazine wrote: "He is obsessed by light and power of light, as it reveals objects both animate and inanimate, to create a disturbing sense, in de Chirico's memorable phrase, 'of still lifes come alive or figures become still'." Mary Rose Beaumont wrote in the Art Review: "A fine draughtsman with a firm grasp of composition, Granger-Taylor combines sensuous handling of the paint with a sensitive feeling for his subject."
