Leander Mienardus Knust creates environments, constructs things, and composes music.  

His sculptural works invite us to question relationships to the material world while remaining honest to their personal histories. His music, often employed to reflect ideas behind physical works, combines disparate elements to produce new potentials and expand genre convention. Leander is a co-founder of Fat City Arts, a non-profit, community driven project space and venue located in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. His bands perform regularly, and there is always something underway. 

Leander received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute in 2015.
