Marcin MaciejowskiBORN 1974, Grójec k/ Krakowa
Maciejowski’s paintings are vivid, cartoon-style chronicles of Poland’s social life. They feature motifs from all kinds of iconographic sources: from the tabloid press, through cult movies, to the catalogues of Poland’s art museums. He was a co-founder of the informal painting collective Ładnie, alongside Rafał Bujnowski, Wilhelm Sasnal and other artists. Winner of the Paszport Polityki award (2002). He graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Arts, Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree in Prof. Piotr Kunce’s studio of poster art (2001). He had previously studied architecture at the Cracow University of Technology. Since 2000, he has collaborated with the weekly Przekroj, where he publishes his comic strip, I Live Here and I Like It. In 2010, the National Museum in Cracow held a solo exhibition of his work.
