Two main characters, Kargul and Pawlak find themselves in America where their traditional "familiar" mentality and habits will be put to a serious test.

Painting from the "Polish icons" series, prepared for the exhibition "Structures of Good" in Raster (2006). Pure-bred horse and a young, beautiful girl - one of Maciejowski's favourite motifs.

Ich spreche sehr schlecht Deutsch, 2001
One of paintings exhibited at a show in Vienna's Kunstbuero (2002). During a "Bayer" company scholarship residence in Leverkusen in 2001, Maciejowski began painting pictures with German captions, which became his standard working method year after, upon starting a cooperation with Vienna Mayer Kainer gallery. Nonetheless, the title statement still holds true.
Manolo (Scarface), 2000
Scene from the "Scarface" with Al Pacino. The film also gave name to another painting and the artist's solo show in PGS, Sopot (2003). Maciejowski had painted a number of Pacino's portraits as different characters, as the actor is among his favorite "famous people". Another verion of the painting was created in 2003.
Maciejowski's first significant paint marks the beginning of our (Raster's) acquaintance with him and a fascination with his works. Photographed during our first meeting with the painter (back then a Fine Arts Academy student) in Cracow's district of Kazimierz in summer 1998 and reproduced in the 6th issue of printed "Raster" (fall 1998).
