His education as an artist and architect was rigorously academic with strong emphasis on drawing from classical Greek and Roman sculptures. Countless hours of drawing sessions with live models trained his eye – brain – hand coordination. He is fascinated by geometrical abstraction with its own movement and display of inner forces. Working with different media, often mixed together, he creates the expressive forms of his own dream world. In the recent solo exhibition “Stone & Fire”, using large format photographs of stones, fire and other natural scenes, Tadeusz invited the viewers to experience a galactic journey. The following handwritten motto welcomed the visitors: every stone is a part of the universe. See the intriguing beauty and discover our cosmic connection.
