Leo Maranz was an American artist whose abstract designs on plexiglass, polystyrene, and handmade papers gained him international attention as a visionary of ultra-modern art. It’s interesting that Maranz began his career in art as a hobby, having previously worked as a mechanical engineer and established himself as a prominent innovator in his industrial career.
