Artists on Art - Tom Knechtel on Tiepolo

Employing a range of media—oil paint, watercolor, gouache, collage, graphite—Tom Knechtel creates spectacular images. “I often think of my paintings as a kind of imaginary theater company,” he has said, which perfectly encapsulates their mesmerizing play of color, characters, and scenes. Knechtel lives and works in Los Angeles and teaches at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

For Artists on Art, Tom Knechtel speaks on Centaur Arrested in Flight, a Female Faun on His Back by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo.
