Polish painter, designer and writer, active in France. He studied at
the School of Art, Warsaw (19049), in Antwerp, and at the Ecole des
Beaux-Arts, Paris (191112). In the 1910s he was attracted to
Futurism and the work of the Russian avant-garde, and he became one
of the originators of Polish Constructivism. His early works show
the influence of the Section dOr, Cubism and Purism. He was a
member of the Jung Jiddisch group in 19212. He lived in Berlin in
19223, exhibiting twice at the Grosse Berliner Kunstausstellungen.
Back in Warsaw, he joined the Constructivist BLOCK GROUP.
