Ryan Knight - 2018 Official Poster Artist

Thursday, December 7, 2017

New to the art scene, Ryan Knight is an ambitious artist whose paintings reflect the land he grew up in. Born and raised in Canada's Yukon, Ryan has had the opportunity to see nature in a way most never get the chance to. Whether for work or pleasure, travelling the vast northern territory has allowed him to become closer to the land, wildlife and rich history of the Yukon, where he currently resides with his two children

Ryan is a self taught artist, who draws his inspiration from the intense, yet ruthless, beauty of the wilderness around him. Influenced by street art for his backgrounds, modern art for his foregrounds, he uses a technique involving spray paints and bright spattered acrylics to create truly unique images of the north and its wildlife
