His father, Józef, was involved in creating the Polish administration in Chojnice in 1922, and in 1939, he was sent to the Nazi camp in Mauthausen. After the war, he returned to Chojnice with his family, where Janusz completed his secondary education and in 1954 moved to Kraków to start his studies at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts. There, in Kraków, he has continuously lived, worked, and created. At the Academy of Fine Arts, he received comprehensive and solid training in various fields including painting, architectural painting, sculpture, architectural sculpture, poster art, and specialized in interior architecture.
In addition to his artistic pursuits, Trzebiatowski is also driven by a passion for social activism, which manifests in his desire to create new works for both society and art. This passion led to the establishment of art galleries, the Residential Interior Design Consultation (1958), the Creative Association "Polart," the Polish Art Gallery in Chojnice, and the Museum in the Tower. The artist's rich personality does not allow him to focus on just one field of art; he works simultaneously and parallelly in multiple disciplines. He is a painter, poster artist, sculptor, set designer, medalist, and poet. His creativity and the quality of his work are undoubtedly influenced by many factors: sensitivity, diligence, extraordinary talent, education, and also the difficult wartime experiences that dominated his childhood.
The artist's works reflect his value system, worldview, and way of perceiving reality. His art is thus a result of his joys, sorrows, and experiences, making it diverse, rich, and true, carrying universal values for every person in their quest for the Absolute. The greatness of his work is also evidenced by numbers. The artist's works, exceeding 3000 in number, are housed in over 113 museums worldwide, have been exhibited in more than 30 countries, and the number of exhibitions has already surpassed five hundred.
Countries where the artist has exhibited his works include: England, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Spain, the Netherlands, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Canada, Cuba, Luxembourg, Mexico, Germany, Norway, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, USA, Syria, Switzerland, Sweden, Ukraine, Hungary, Italy.
