About the Artist: Franciszek Andrzej Bobola Biberstein-Starowieyski (July 8, 1930, in Bratkówka, Poland – February 23, 2009) was a Polish artist. From 1949 to 1955 he studied at Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków and Warsaw. He specialized in poster, drawing, painting, stage designing, and book illustration. He was a member of Alliance Graphique International (AGI). Throughout his career, his style deviated from the socialist realism that was prevalent during the start of his career and the popular, brightly colored Cyrk posters, however, he did create one Cyrk poster 'Homage to Picasso' in 1966. He was the first Polish artist to have a one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York in 1986.
