Janusz Obst is a classically trained artist from Zamosc, Poland, where he was born in 1946. As a young marine, he traveled the world, having spent much of his young adult life in Europe, China, Africa, and India. It was in India where he was captivated by sculpture, and for the last three decades, he has focused his work on bas-relief.

His art permeates the interaction between the history of civilization, individual fate, current social and community-based issues, and his unfaltering interest in the interpersonal relations within the context of the modern world.
