Grotesque Heads “Carved” from Pasteboard (Jun, 1934)

Grotesque Heads “Carved” from Pasteboard
Masks and heads bearing a striking resemblance to the persons caricatured are “carved” from plain cardboard or tin sheet metal by a Polish sculptor and painter. Scissors and paper clips form his only tools in fashioning the grotesque figures which have attracted attention in European art circles and won him praise.

    I tried looking for him on Wikipedia, but there are just too many entries for Polish artists in the English Wikipedia (never mind the Polish Wikipedia – apparently the Polish are much more into fine art than we North Americans are) to figure it out.
