Polish sculptor Jerzy Jarnuszkiewicz studied at the School of Decorative Art and Industrial Crafts, Kraków (1936-38), the Municipal School of Decorative Arts and Painting, Warszawa (1938-39), and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warszawa (1946-50), where he taught sculpture from 1950-85. Jarnuszkiewicz was a member of an artist group that received an award for the memorial at the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz, the International Monument to the Martyrdom of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
By 1964, Jarnuszkiewicz created three public monuments in Warszawa, Lublin and Kalisz and several architectural sculptures. He was also well-known as a medal and graphic artist. In the 1960s he created geometric openwork metal sculptures of immense proportions set in urban spaces. These were remarkable sculptures of welded junk – hooks, blades, bayonets, chains, equipment parts, and abstract compositions.
