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).

He was the first Polish artist to have a one man show at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York in 1985 - and voila!
