A visual artist, born and raised in Amsterdam, Antoon Knaap settled in Ireland over twenty-five years ago.
For the benefit of his sanity he alternates periods of abstract painting with producing more realistic work, while his preoccupation with history and mathematics feeds through into most of his pieces. Where his abstract work contains mainly geometric designs, demonstrating a clear obsession for circles, his more realistic work is invariably focused on contemporary Irish history.
A selection of his work can be viewed in The Kildare Gallery at Carton House, Maynooth. The artist can be met in person and his work viewed on any given Sunday on the railings of Merrion Square, Dublin.
