Between 1940 and 1942, he studied at the Interior Design Department of the Higher School of Engineering in Warsaw and as took part in the secret courses of the Warsaw University of Technology's Architecture Faculty. After the war, the continued studying at the same faculty of the University of Technology. He was detained at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

He designed over two hundred posters.

Beginning in the 1950s and through the 1980s (before the era of globalised entertainment-made movie posters) which now look the same in every country, Polish artists were creating their own versions for the internal market. What resulted was a whole school of artists trained in the art of the poster.
