Robert Knight

My goal as an artist is to convey a message of beauty that I see in my everyday life, through the mediums of painting and drawing.

My style varies from realist contemporary to a design oriented format.

Robert paints spiritual landscapes that include rainforest, cityscapes, atmospheric aerial views and seascapes.

whatever I see that I love, is what I paint to share my passion with the viewer.

Robert was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1953. He has had a series of solo and group exhibitions spanning from 1987 until the present.

My first painting set was given to me when I was about 10 years of age. I started an apprenticeship in signwriting when I was sixteen, I was always drawn to the graphics side of the trade, pictorials etc.

In the early 80s I had some painting lessons with the late Terry Collins, after this all I wanted to do is paint. I started to sell my work in the mid 80s and gradually my art career started to take off. I am mostly self-taught. [Robert Knight – ZoneArts]
