Tycjan Knut was born in 1985 in Warsaw, graduated in 2011 from the Warsaw Academy of Fine
Arts after studying painting in the studio of Prof. Jarosław Modzelewski. Ph.D. at the Jan Kochanowski University Institute of Fine Arts in Kielce. Knut works in painting and drawing, 
He mostly creates subtle abstractions, which resound with the echo of the geometric trend, but also express a desire to exceed that tradition, freed from the constraints of formula. Knut uses delicate tonal differences and subtle colours. His reductive images also have qualities of a multi-level
composition, because they were established as a result of the rise and overlap of colours in time,
in a way that resembles the organic world. Guided by intuition and imagination. He’s known for
digging in archives in search for long forgotten or unknown abstract “masters”, as his interest focuses on discovering the art from 1960s. and 1970s.
