Robert Knight

Australian fine artist

Robert Knight started his working life as a sign writer and transitioned to a successful career as a professional artist.

His paintings have the ability to transport the viewer into the scene, whether it is a painting of the Australian bush, a busy city café or views from a clifftop overlooking a beach. He is never without his camera and enjoys immersing himself in his surroundings whilst capturing views he then translates onto canvas when back in his studio.

Robert’s paintings depict an ‘ethereal mood’, showing texture, delicate colour and light. Sometimes places are captured in a simple but elegant way in charcoal, whilst others are built using strong composition to layer the memories of parts of a scene, in oil paint.

These ethereal landscapes show glimpses of looking up, down and through, creating something new and fascinating. The latter has captured the attention of Art magazines, collectors, and students alike.
