Larz Grenier was born and raised in a small town in rural Maine and now resides in New Hampshire. From a young age, Larz’s fascination with drawing and painting became apparent, often encouraged and inspired by his father, a part-time wedding photographer.

During his high school years, Larz’s curiosity about photography flourished when he crafted a pinhole camera. The intrigue deepened as he borrowed his father’s Minolta camera, unlocking a new world of visual storytelling through the lens.

Larz Grenier artistic journey continued into college, where he pursued his education at Montserrat College of Art. In 2002, he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration. In his artistic endeavors, Larz explores a myriad of themes, including the allure of flora, the intrigue of fauna, the enigma of humor, and the fascination with the macabre. His works embody a distinct and captivating blend of emotions, making each piece an intricate expression of his inner thoughts.

“The artistic process is a joyous and exploratory expedition. I believe in the power of experimentation and embrace every opportunity to push the boundaries of my creativity.”

In his belief that artists sometimes take themselves too seriously, Larz brings a refreshing perspective to the art world. He champions a lighthearted approach, rejecting the weight of excessive self-importance and instead encourages an environment of joy and freedom within his creative sphere.

Larz Grenier thrives as an artist exploring various mediums. He passionately engages in alternative photography, linoleum printing, and mono-printing, each medium adding a unique layer to his artistic narrative.
