Inner feelings made tangible via brushwork and extravagance. Representative and abstract works in acrylic by Milton Knight.
Milton Knight graduated from BOCES Cultural Arts Center (Syosset, N.Y.), then took a few college classes in art at Hofstra University while beginning a freelance art and writing career. He left home at seventeen, eyeing out what some would call a semi-living at through crafts while enjoying a lovely semi-homeless existence on Manhattan’s waterfront. He finally landed in a Brooklyn brownstone where he spent seven water buggy years.
Knight spent the 1980’s on the outskirts of the “radical art scene” of Greenwich Village. A challenging time, if not always a happy one. Labor on Ninja Turtles comics allowed him to get up a grubstake to move to the West Coast in 1991, lured by prospects of a more healthful existence. “There I followed a riot and a few earthquakes while working in animation as a designer, animator, and debuting as a director thanks to a good friend Felix the Cat and yes, I did a spot of work for Disney.
Today Knight works on a stream of independent projects, which have included a first novel, independent animation, and painting. He became a Bloomington resident in June of 2018.
