Jacek Tylicki (born 1951 in "Sopot, "Poland) is a Polish artist who settled in "New York City in 1982. Tylicki works in the field of "land art, "installation art, and "site-specific art. His "conceptual projects often raise social and environmental issues.



Starting in 1973, Tylicki began sending sheets of canvas or paper into the "wind, "rivers, or "forests and leaving them for a long while in a natural environment, thus forcing upon nature an attitude previously reserved to the artist: the creation of forms. The project is often called natural art.

In the years 1974–1990, he initiated the idea of an anonymous artist by issuing a periodical called Anonymous Artists where artists could present their art without revealing their own names.

In 1985 he created an "installation called Chicken Art. Tylicki transformed the "Now Gallery in "Manhattan to a hen house in which live chickens watched realistic paintings of chickens, chicks and roosters hanging on the gallery walls. Tylicki declared:

For a chicken the most beautiful is chicken.[1]

Another installation was the Free Art, where Tylicki invited well-known artists, including "Mark Kostabi and "Rodney Greenblat, to give away their art to the public for free. "Video and "photography play an important role in his work as a record of its elusiveness and transience.
