What Art Means to Anthony Knoll and How He Began His Career

Art represents a lot of things to different people. For some, it can be a hobby or a source of income, but for others, it serves as a platform where they can express themselves and let their imagination run wild. 

For Anthony Knoll, art is a divine task. Based out of Connecticut, Anthony is a full-time energy technician who enjoys making art in his free time. As a very expressive person, art has always been his outlet which shaped the person he is today. 

Showing the Natural in His Art

Ever since he was young, Anthony always had some proclivity towards creating.  

“I like to experiment with different mediums, and while I have no formal art training, I consider nature to be my biggest teacher. My intuition has always guided my work and I hope to make art that allows others to reflect on their own emotions,” he said. 

Anthony claims that he pours a lot of himself into his work. He always is his authentic self around others which eventually translated into his pieces. 

Beginning As An Artist 

Even though Anthony had no formal training in art, he credits the start of his career to his time in art classrooms at school. 

“I always had encouraging art teachers and parents who encouraged my talent and even put some of my work in newspapers or shows,” he shared. 

Later in his life, Anthony started taking art more seriously in high school where he took an AP art course as well as some graphic design classes at a community college. 

“Once I had made my art Instagram and was able to use it as a gallery for my artwork, I made connections with other artists and a lot of great people! The exposure made it possible for me to start accepting some commissions and participating in collective challenges,” he shared. 

Anthony’s hard work and dedication to art paid off when he was invited to participate in his first art show, along with a handful of other artists, a few years back. 

“It was a new experience for me putting myself and my work out there in such an intimate way! I was able to sell some of my work and connect with many like-minded people,” he said. 

The experience gave Anthony a chance to get his feet wet and experience what the art world has to offer. Now, he still pursues his passion for art and left his mark in each piece he makes
