Here’s is some info I found on the net: Morris Katz From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Morris Katz Born Moshe Katz 5 March 1932 Galicia, Poland Died 12 November 2010 (aged 78) Bronx, New York Nationality American Other names Moshe Katz Occupation Painter Known for Fastest Toilet Paper Painter Morris Katz (born Moshe Katz on March 5, 1932 November 12, 2010) was a Polish-American painter. He holds two Guinness World Records as the world’s fastest painter and the world’s most prolific artist. He has also been called the “King of Schlock Art” and the “King of Toilet Paper Art” because of a novel means of painting he developed using a palette knife and toilet tissue instead of a paintbrush.  Contents 1 Early life2 Instant Art3 Death4 References5 External links Early lifeKatz was born in 1932 in Galicia, Poland.  At age 13 he studied under Dr. Hans Fokler of the Munich Academy.  After World War II, he lived for a while in a displaced persons camp, where he earned a diploma in carpentry, and he said later that toilet paper was his diploma in art.  He moved to the United States in 1949, when he took a job in carpentry while maintaining a sideline with his art.  While working on his unpublished Dictionary of Color in 1956, he decided to try painting with his palette knife instead of his brushes.  After some time he also began experimenting with the use of rags; when he ran out of rags he turned to toilet tissue.  As of February 2007, over his career he had painted more than 280,000 paintings.  Over his long career, he established himself as a painter, comedian and television personality.  An obituary  described him as creating’instant art’ and entertaining generations of guests in the old Borscht Belt hotels. Instant ArtKatz described his method as “Instant Art, “ as he completed entire paintings in as little as 30 seconds.  He is listed as a human oddity in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not because of his ability to paint full works of art in less than five minutes.  A 2003 review of a serious painting  said Normally this artist’s works are notable only for their carefree and speedy execution, but this painting is a welcome exception. DeathKatz died on November 12, 2010 after suffering a stroke. References Salzberg, Charles (Nov 13, 1978). “The King of Toilet Paper Art”.
