ARTADVISOR | Zbysław Marek Maciejewski

Zbysław Marek Maciejewski studied painting in Wacław Taranczewski’s workshop in the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. A few years later, as a fully-educated painter, he started leading his own workshop in the same Academy.

Speaking of his artistic way, Maciejewski’s lifetime could be divided into two parts, considering the changes in his artistic expression.

Zbysław Maciejewski | Untitled | drawing on paper

The first period is characteristic for the author’s evident fascination with his own personality and sexuality, but also with his own ironic point of view about the world and people in general. Maciejewski was very witty and had a cruel sense of humor, sometimes up to the point of being sarcastic. He didn’t like unintelligent women, and he made fun of them and mocked at them in his works. That’s easily noticeable in his drawings. At the same time, he adored smart women – those who knew how to face his talent and intellect. That being said, the truth was that, most of all, Maciejewski loved men. They were his main fascination and inspiration and a dominant subject of his paintings and drawings.

ARTCHAT | How it all began? A retrospective

At the beginning, there was a gift. As a little child, Marian Gołogórski very often modeled small forms and figures for fun. Creating own child's world, using plasticin and modeling clay, he was making first steps towards something that turned out to be his life-long passion and profession. There is an interestng anecdote from an early period of Marian Gołogórski's childhood. That's how he talks about this:

The good friend of my parents, Ms. Eugenia Hejmanowa-Olejnik, who was a Jewish survivor from the Holocaust, worked for Polish Radio. When I was 6 years old, she took three small and charming figures of "Plastuś" (polish children's book character) I made in plasticin. Eugenia passed my little sculptures to the editor's office of Polish Radio in Warsaw. After a couple of days, a very well known Polish actress, Irena Kwiatkowska, who performed the role of Plastuś in the radio programme for children, said "thank you, little Marianek Gołogórski for sending the beautiful figures of Plastuś".

We can say that it was his first success in the artistic field. Surely the most unexpected.

As time went by, Gologorski became a teenager, and had to make a decision about his future. Because he was still passionate with sculpture, he decided to leave Piotrków Trybunalski (a small Polish city) and start artistic education in one of Polish bigger cities. And so, Marian, as a seventeen years old boy became a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.
