Jakob Savinšek was a Slovenian sculptor born in the town of Kamnik in the Upper Carniolan. Savinšek moved to the capital city of Ljubljana secondary school, after which he studied medicine at the University of Ljubljana. Savinšek became interested in drawing and painting in the 1930s and 40s, though his training was interrupted by his arrest during World War II. For his own security, Savinšek joined the Slovenian Home Guard until the end of the war.
