About the Artist

Lillian Gray is a contemporary South African artist. Gray’s work is founded on the principle that modern society craves craftsmanship and skill and that the time has come to return to true artistry. In her paintings she celebrates beauty and pursues authenticity.

Gray is inspired by the Impressionists, but with a modern-day twist. Whether she chooses to depict people or the urban landscape, she makes sure her subjects command attention. Paintings like Leratho and Nandi carry a powerful emotional charge. Gray handles color and brush stroke with unhesitating confidence and vigor.
