About John Kneapler
John Kneapler is an accomplished gestural abstract painter. Whether it is his lyrical landscapes or watercolor fish, his paintings emit energy and vitality. His ability to dance with color is defined by his powerful brush strokes and help define his unique style. His striking color combinations and sense of fluidity carry through his confidence, maturity and openness to his work. John grew up in Miami, Florida near the water, and loves the ocean, vast skies, and changing weather. He is happy that his paintings and prints make people feel good and loves bringing joy to others lives.
John is President of John Kneapler Design, an award-winning design firm based in NYC that specializes in branding, packaging and graphic design. His designs have been featured in every major communications design publication and he has 6 greeting card designs in the Museum of Modern Art. John was a competitive gymnast in high school.
