Did you know?

During the Second World War, Roszak worked for a defense contractor, helping to design aircraft.


In 1929 Roszak traveled to Prague and met artists interested in making work from industrial materials such as metal and plastic. Inspired by them, he incorporated this approach into his own sculpture for the next few decades.
