Rafal Buj­now­ski was born in Wadowice, hometown of Karol Woj­tyla. In the course of a few years Rafal has created a number of works refer­ring to the Polish pope. The first being a diagram-​painting showing how one could easily paint a por­trait of John Paul II. On the basis of this model, Buj­now­ski executed a series of 33 iden­tical pain­tings of the pope. An analogous diagram was created for drawings, and published by Raster in a unique edition of 30 copies in the album “Good” (2001).
