Emerging as one of the most notable young artists of the new millennium, Grant Maniér (maun-yay), a young talented Eco-Artist combines his two worlds: autism and art. His obsession with paper became his form of art therapy. Grant is changing the perceptions of how to reduce, reuse, and recycle by creating extraordinary collages using thousands of pieces of recycled calendars, magazines, posters, puzzles and more. From an owl made from movie posters to dolphins crafted with applesauce lids, Grant is raising the awareness and beauty of recycling.
Today, Grant is an award-winning artist and advocate, capturing the attention of national media and being honored with awards multiple times for his Eco-impressionism as well as his outstanding contribution to the community. Grant brings his visual art exhibit and literacy program into schools and organizations, teaching the importance of environmental responsibility through his art and new children’s book series: Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and friends.
He also supports great causes and has raised thousands of dollars for student scholarships, therapy, camps, and more.
Whether an admirer or owner of an Eco-original or print, people love his art, his story, and that he stands for “HOPE”.
