Chad Knapp

Swat Team- The Musical
Chad Knapp is an Arizona artist, who used to show his work in the gallery I worked at. He is a high school art teacher, but he continues to make these pen and ink drawings which I happen to enjoy very much. He always incorporated the blankness of the canvas and I like the emphasis that it gives to his subjects. He has a series of work that are all titled "Self Portrait" though they are all portrait of various individuals doing many random things. The two images above are of some of my favorites that he showed in the gallery. The actual size of his drawings are generally quite large, but these images don't translate the size very well.
