Maciejuk is the author of a series of works themed around characters from children’s animation from the communist era, including Colargol. In the painting in the Foundation’s collection, Colargol is shown flying through the air, as he did in one of the episodes. The seemingly innocent cartoon figures have been painted in monumental scale. The artist studies simple, everyday images and then subjects them to the viewer’s onlook. Is a realistic representation of an animated character real? Does the reality depicted by Maciejuk really exist or is it mere fiction? – these are only few of many questions the viewer is confronted with.
