About John Kneapler

Although he lives in New York City, John Kneapler’s paintings truly capture the color and movement of growing up near the water in Miami, Florida. John is a gestural painter, whose work is defined by powerful brushstrokes and a wonderful sense of fluidity. John has been painting at the Art Students League of New York for over 30 years and is also the president of John Kneapler Design, an award-winning graphic design studio in NYC.
