Jan Knap
Was born in 1949 in Chrudimi, Repubblica Ceca

Jan Knap was born in 1949 in Chrudimi in the Czech Republic. Knap studied architecture in Prague and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dusseldorf, between 1970 and ’72. In the 70s he moved to the United States (where he stayed from 1972 to 1982, living mostly in New York). In the late 70s he founded with Milan Kunc and Peter Angermann the ”Normal group’’: an anomalous group that brought together three resident artists, respectively Kunc in Cologne, Angermann in Nuremberg and finally Knap, at least officially, in Chrudimi and New York. In the 80s Knap’s pilgrimage continued: firstly he studied theology in Rome from 1982 to 1984, then from 1984 to 1989 he lived and worked in Cologne, and finally from 1989 to 1992 he moved to Modena. He now lives and works in Koln, Modena and in the Czech Republic.
