Józef Nadrowski was born in Widawa. He spent his childhood and school years in Karpacz, beautiful and picturesque country town, located in mountains. This may be the reason for his susceptibility for beauty and nature. Since his early childhood he has been interested in art especially sculpture, so he began learning in artistic school in Cieplice Śląskie, with famous Silesia’s artist professor Szymanik as a mentor. He graduated from the school in 1980.
His two biggest passions are mountains and sculptures. These are the most important things in his life. Józef’s works are inspired by the surrounding. In a huge snag he is able to perceive a form, which he brings to life using a chisel. The artist’s favourite material is wood, the matter which lives and cooperates with the artist. His sculptures not only have form, but also soul.

His works are friendly to people: they bring joy and warmth. Many of them have gone abroad.
