Jan Lenica was a Polish graphic designer and cartoonist. He was born in 1928 in Poznań, Poland. Lenica cited his father, the artist Alfred Lenica as the single most significant influence on his work. Both father and son shared a belief in Modern art as well as a reverence for Max Ernst, the French Surrealists and the Polish surrealists. A teenager when the Second World War ended, Lenica’s oeuvre also reflects the experience of death and the loss of identity. In the years immediately following the war, Lenica earned money drawing political cartoons that appeared in both Communist newspapers and cultural journals. His works are in museum collections and private collections around the world, including MoMA New York
