Paintings for an apartment, 2002
oil on canvas, 160 x 160 cm and 5 series of different paintings:
Lemons, oil on canvas, 25 x 25 cm, series of 40
Glass, oil on canvas, 25 x 25 cm, series of 25
Child on beach, oil on canvas, 35 x 45 cm, series of 50
Wedding, oil on canvas, 42 x 30 cm, series of 25
Boy in water, oil on canvas, 35 x 35 cm, series of 20

The modernist ideas of typicality, standardization and mass-production have permeated Bujnowski's work. The project bears witness to this fact: a series of 5 paintings meant for particular interiors: hall, salon, kitchen and bedroom. Each of the 5 patterns was painted by the artist in several dozen copies and one of IKEA stores has hosted a photo session with Rafal's paintings "posing" in typical interiors. A new standard emerges - IKEA furniture and Bujnowski's serial painting. A somewhat cynical proposition for the rising middle-class.
