John Knapp-Fisher was born in 1931. Following studies in Graphic Design at Maidstone College of Art from 1949, John worked in exhibition design and later for the theatre as a designer and scenic artist. In 1958, while based in London, he began to concentrate on painting and exhibiting.
His lifelong love of boats and the sea - he built them, sailed them and later lived aboard one for several years, is reflected in much of his subject matter, as is the Pembrokeshire landscape, where he has lived and worked since 1965. Indeed, his name has become synonymous with Pembrokeshire landscape painting.
John has exhibited widely in Britain and abroad, developing a large and loyal following. He is now one of Wales’ most popular and well-known artists and his work is represented in many public and private collections. These include the National Museum of Wales Cardiff, The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth and The Contemporary Art Society of Wales. He was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy in 1992.
