Stefan Knapp was born in Bilgorj in Poland. He took up art as a means of dealing with the trauma of his experiences prior to and during the war. His formal art training was carried out at St Martin's School of Art and the Slade School of Art.

For many of his major works his medium was fired enamel on steel sheet, a technique which he spent years researching and developing. His work tends to be abstract, often influenced by natural, organic forms expressed in pure, bright colours.
