Chad Knight is a 41-year-old visual artist creating mind-bending 3D drawings. His unique approach to digital sculptures fascinates people all over the internet.

"I think I became a visual artist at conception," Chad told the Klassik Magazine. "It is more who I am as a person than what I do. However, the reason I make digital art is that I have a very overactive, noisy mind. Creating modern art is one of the few things that allow me to present. I skateboarded professionally for 16 years. During that time, it served as my creative outlet. Now that I do not have the opportunity to do it as often, combined with being less enthusiastic about broken bones, my visual art explorations have become my new outlet."

Knight reveals, that the desire to continually improve is a significant motivator in his creating process and that he enjoys both: the process and the result.

Many people look for symbolism in Knight's surrealism works, and they are right too. "Everything on my work represents something or someone. My art is very much like an encrypted journal that I can share publicly." publicly."

I love the teeny ripples in the water; is the water fabricated WITH the head or is it a real picture???

Kind of a Debbie Downer, aren't you Tinkle Wolf? Keep in mind, this is imaginary. No trees were harmed during the creation of this earth angle.

It's lovely but it would be nice if the lines were attached somehow, like those one line drawings, rather than just floating in space. Still amazing.
