Jerzy Zaruba was a famous painter and graphic artist, but mostly known as a cartoonist. He was also a graphic artist, stage scene designer, author of satirical drawings, political crÃ¨ches, and an illustrator for books and magazines. He graduated from the Warszawa School of Art and the AcadÃ©mie des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
Zaruba made his dÃ©but as a caricaturist in the humor magazine, MarchoÅt. In later years, his drawings and essays appeared in many other magazines. He also worked intensively in the field of advertising graphics, and was a co-founder of Wheels Advertising Graphic, a professional organization of artists engaged in commercial art. Today, Zaruba is now remembered more as the author of excellent pre-war articles, and his superb book illustrations.
