Biography   Chris Knipp


Chris Knipp went to a one-room schoolhouse in Williamsburg, Virginia, where his father taught Shakespeare and played the horses. Knipp has been a soldier, Arabist, teacher, and long-distance runner. He grew up in Baltimore and has lived in New York, Cairo, Rabat, and San Francisco.

The teaching and friendship of West Coast beat art legend Jay De Feo brought him to an art career. He has become known for his chine collé etchings, which are in collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. In his present imagery he is influenced by the Russian avant-garde. He admires Matisse and he likes to listen to nineteenth-century keyboard music and Bach and the songs of Umm Kalsoum.
