Introducing Christopher Knights

December 2, 2016

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Toronto-based artist, Christopher Knights, to our contemporary roster. Christopher has been painting and studying art his whole life, eventually graduating with an award for best illustrator from Sheridan College.  Since, he’s exhibited extensively in major cities across Canada and the U.S.

His paintings are textured and energetic with rich layers that you could spend aeons burrowing into. He states that his “vision is to create images through the mystery of painting that convey the sculptural beauty of man made objects and the essence, love and magnificence of nature.” He’s “interested in facilitating a conversation between the natural world and man-made technology in a way which questions nature’s place within contemporary culture. He argues that the two are not converse to each other, but rather a harmonious and beautiful macrocosm.” The result is a gorgeous explosion of colour and vitality where these facets collide.
