Aleksander Wat, (born Aleksander Chwat; 1900-1967) was a Polish poet, writer and art theoretician, one of the precursors of the Polish futurism movement in the early 1920s. His nine years spent in the Soviet Union cured his Communist sympathies and Wat was considered not reliable enough by the Soviet-sponsored Communist authorities of Poland to allow him to publish his own works. In 1959 he emigrated to France and settled in Paris, where he died July 29, 1967.
