1973 Surrealist Etching Artist ID Signature Help Please

I picked this and another one by the same artist at an estate sale the other day.  I'm describing iot as surrealism because it's so wild.  I'm hoping someone might recognize the artist.  Any input would be appreciated.  the plate measures about 10" by 10". Thanks in advance for your help Smiley Happy

Delightful etching.

 

At first the signature looked like "Brink" to me too but, on reflection, I suppose it might also be something like Brin Kurnamen/Kurnamun.

 

Brink Mann?

 

Brinkmann?

I just tried searching Brink Mann and Brinkmann and found this wonderful piece:
