About The Artist
HAND PAINTED ART
The career path of Dave “Letterfly” Knoderer has been as diverse as the many creative offerings produced during four decades to an ever increasing list of satisfied clients. Starting as an apprentice to the sign and design trade as a teenager, his appetite for the unusual and challenging led him to many sensational projects. A skilled painter, he designed large wall graphics and theater sets, themed interior and exterior murals in amusement parks and restaurants, crafted delicate Gold Leaf window treatments, and gilded ornamentation on Antique Fire Engines. When the computer took over the sign game, he established himself in the RV industry as the most prolific airbrush mural artist in the country, producing over two thousand high quality painted works on the exteriors of motor homes that lead to other even more spectacular projects including the decoration of retail environments, residential murals and delicate vehicular and motorcycle pinstriping, portraits, imagery and custom paint of all kinds. In addition to hosting a variety of projects at his studio called ArtPark in Florida, the artist travels nationwide to paint on location when needed, to accomplish these special feats and, as the result, continues to satisfy growing numbers. True expression captured with masterful brushwork is all part of the Letterfly experience.
