Andrzej Lichota is a contemporary Polish artist, art painter, sculptor, director. His artistic interests revolve around oil painting entrenched in the current of abstract expressionism, inspired by the artist`s authentic experiences.  Landscape or its structural attributes and fragments, to be precise - as wellas meetings, places, and broadly defined reference to the archetype all constitute a significant element of his works. Lichota`s painting oeuvre often features light clashing with darkness with colour emerging as a result of that encounter. Wide impastos, the variety of tools used, resorting to means of artistic expression rooted in the art informel  tradition, as well as large format contribute to the almost monumental effect exerted by the paintings. The artist`s travels gave rise to such series as Australia, Iran, La Gomera, and the latest one - Corrida.

He obtained his MA from the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, Cracow. 

A scholar of the Polish Ministry of Culture
