Was trained in photorealism in a variety of mediums. Graham explains his work by saying "A lot of my work deals with the quiet moments in a story, between the excitement and action where characters deal with internal conflicts, doubt, loneliness, wonder, apprehension. My work often comes across as sad and melancholy, but there is always a sense of hope that I am trying to portray. I try to keep the meaning and scenario of my work open-ended so each viewer can interpret the narrative in their own way. There is a story in there, but it's up to you to decide what it is."
