Caziel attended the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, 1931-36, where the influence of French Post-Impressionist painting was omnipresent. His aspiration to emigrate to Paris finally
came true in 1937 then, with the outbreak of WWII he voluntarily joined the Polish army in France. Life in post-war Paris was hard but Caziel was stimulated by a search for a new
form of pictorial space and worked profusely. This search for a different dimension took shape with his first one-man show at the Galerie Allard in 1947 which was followed by an
invitation to join Picasso, Hans Hartung, Victor Vasarely, Alfred Manessier and others to exhibit at the prestigious 'Salon de mai'.
Throughout his five-year close friendship with Picasso, 1947-1951, Caziel's stylistic preoccupations were divided. Strong lyrical and expressive compositions much indebted to
Picasso alternate with works revealing his quest for Abstraction. During his years in Paris, Caziel was at the heart of the developments of the 'Ecole de Paris'. His move out of
Paris to the surrounding countryside did not mean the end but the beginning of a new chapter in his life-long drive to follow his path of excellence. His paintings evolved into
rigorous geometrical patterns, anticipating his pure abstract works of the 1960s
