Born 1939 in Sławków.

"In the times of my secondary school and my university studies the idea had often recurred to me: why is it so that a poem, a story, a novel etc. begin just in some given place and come to an end just in another one? - so I have set my mind on producing works that are devoid of such a feature, confining myself to the pure text."

In 1964 he started writing poetry, and in 1967/1968 concrete poems. Since concrete poetry requires to be shown in space, Dróżdż made individual exhibitions and participated in group shows, and since 1974 worked on steady basis with museums and galleries. In 1979 he has edited a book Poezja konkretna (Concrete poetry). Collaborated with Michał Bieganowski.

He was a member of the Union of Polish Artists.

He has been active in animating the concrete movement in Poland, and has organized numerous theoretical symposiums focusing on concrete poetry. His poems have been published in numerous magazines and exhibition catalogues in Poland and abroad.

Died in 2009.
