Robert McKnight was born in Kingstree, South Carolina.  He studied painting at The Miami Art

Center, and fine arts at Syracuse University, where

he received a BFA in Painting.  He also studied sculpture in London at the Sir John Cass School 

of Art.

 He has had numerous solo shows and has participated in group exhibitions at the Lowe Art Museum (University of Miami), the Miami- Dade College North Campus Art Gallery, the Art Gallery

at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Gallery Antigua, Amdalozi Gallery, Green Light Art Space,

The Bakehouse Art Complex, Farside Gallery, among others.

As a former member of The Miami Black Artist Workshop  and The KUUMBA Artist Association, McKnight has worked to generate opportunities for greater professional visibility for African-American

and African artists, says McKnight, “My mission as an artist is to create works that are individual in style and content reflecting my heart and soul, stretching the poetic and artistic license in both material and content.”
