Grant Haffner’s Vibrant Landscapes

Born in 1978 Berkeley, California and raised in East Hampton, Long Island Grant Haffner has been a resident of the East End of Long Island, New York for most of his life. Haffner’s images are inspired by and reflect the country roads, flat landscapes and surrounding water that we all enjoy. His signature motif of utility poles with power lines creates an original sense of movement and depth to his distinctive, colorful compositions.

When talking about his work Grant offers this. “When I drive I feel completely alive. For a small moment, in between this place and that, I am free from reality. My truck and I become a motion of blurred color, barreling through space and time. I like to keep my window open to listen to the sounds that traveling makes, to enjoy the smell of the landscape. Every trip is a new one, not one sunset is the same. On the road I am a part of the painting. I am movement, color, sound, adventure and emotions. This is my landscape.”
