Wojciech Fangor was born in 1922 in Warsaw. He took art lessons from Tadeusz Pruszkowski and from Felicjan Kowarski at his studio in the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where he subsequently gave lectures from 1954 to 1961. From 1961, Fangor created his art abroad. At first he lived in Vienna, then in Paris, between 1962 and 1964, and subsequently , from 1964 to 1965, in Berlin on a Ford Foundation scholarship. After a nearly year-long stay in England, Fangor settled, as it turned out later, in the United States where he spent 32 years of his life. He worked with "Galerie Chalette" in New York. Between 1966 and 1983 he taught at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Madison, New Jersey. In the period 1967-68 he worked at Harvard University. He moved to Poland in 1999 and stayed there until his death in October 2015.
