Dave Knight


David Knight is an Isle of Wight based artist working predominantly in vitreous enamel.

“My work utilises strong graphic imagery to communicate a story. I incorporate industrial processes such as vitreous enamelling to create larger works, as well as more traditional forms of mark making and print. I utilise a multitude of mediums to communicate the everyday as well as the totally out of the ordinary.”

With a rare mix of a fine art background and four years as an industrial enameller he is inspired by process driven mediums as well as the freedom of simply putting pen to paper.

Some of David Knight’s most recent work includes enamelled hand grenades, in which he took decommissioned American pineapple bombs and enamelled the casings at over 800oC. The idea was to take this brutal piece of destructive design and turn it into something aesthetically and tangibly beautiful.
