In his colourful, powerful works, Norbert Tadeusz portrays slaughtered animal carcasses and exposed human bodies.
His paintings are the result of his studies of the exhibited and exposed body, which is depicted in the colourful and dynamic pictorial works. Tadeusz was inspired by everyday impressions, but gave those motives a surreal twist, which made his paintings ambiguous and more profound, and created a narrative of life.
