Tadeusz Bilecki (b. 1951 in Lodz, Poland) lives and works in Switzerland since 1983. His work has previously been exhibited at Honen-In Gallery, Kyoto; Calibri Gallery Osaka; and AF Gallery Colombo. Bilecki received his MFA from The Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland in 1976.

Tadeusz Bilecki is an extremely productive artist, one who creates an awful lot of works. Characterized by continuous urge to create which often leads to multiple repainting of works. Sometimes it seems as if the act of creating is for him more important than the end result. ‘Action’ is indisputably the motive for search after a form which can be modified without any limits in a variety of media and formats.
A mixture of techniques and materials (metal/paper or ceramics/fabrics) is his kingdom. He worships large formats, formats larger than himself as well as miniature sculptures the size of ostrich’s eye.
A decreasing desire to find techniques which are permanent, eternal and a growing fascination with passing, ephemera and degradation in time.
