ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – For artist Jeremy Knott, he’s not only used to creating art on 100-foot walls and canvases, but on the heads of clients who come in to his salon for a haircut. Of course, those special cuts are by request only.
Knott, from Albuquerque, has been recognized around the world for his haircut art in places like Taipei and Australia.
“I’ve taught in 20 cities and four countries,” says Knott. “And there’s a clipper contest named after me in Australia even in their major hair shows.”
From creating masterpieces on heads with the likeness of Albert Einstein to iconic paintings like the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Knott says it has all evolved from his love of constantly creating and studying art.
“I don’t see dead time in my day,” adds Knott. “I like to study inbetween clients. I like to paint in between clients. I think there’s always room for growth and I think that you can fit a lot into a day.”
