Grant Benoit received his Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Southern Illinois University in 2015, and his Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts from Spring Hill College in 2012. Exploring the idea of the multiple in printmaking, Benoit works outside of the white margin of the edition, using traditonal and digital printmaking methods in sculpture, installation, and artist books.
Benoit is interested in narrative, place, and more specifically memory. In his practice, Benoit combines traditional printmedia with installation and sculpture to reinterpret the mechanics of memory in more human ways through the lens of the domestic space. Through printing wallpaper, he works through ideas of domesticity, place and memory through a print practice that speaks to printmaking's industrial beginnings. Benoit exhibits nationally and internationally, most recently being selected to exhibit work at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey, DEMO Project in Springfield, IL, Williamson Museum in Wirral, England, and Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL.
Benoit currently is the Community Artist in Residence at The Bascom: A Center for the Visual Arts in Highlands, NC. He was a 2016-17 Artist in Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.
