Henryk Kuna was born into an orthodox family. He first studied in order to become a rabbi, but he discovered his artistic talent and decided to follow a career as a sculptor.

He then studied sculpture in Warsaw, before enrolling in the School of Fine Arts in Krakow. There, he met many artists who became his friends. Many of them joined the group Rytm. Rytm was an artistic movement created in 1921 by several artists, including Henryk Kuna, who aspired to the development of a Polish art combining modernity and classicism.
