Rafał Dominik represents human types that appear in Polish popular culture. He is fascinated by the irrepressible vitality and crude creativity of this culture with its prevailing aesthetic canon and all-pervading consumerist fetishism. He affirms the aesthetics to the extent of employing them as a means of glorification, turning disco polo fans into heroes, or indeed superheroes. The relationship of the artist with the world he presents is neither based on irony – these are no caricatures – nor on his identification with the protagonists that he has created. Instead, he is playfully engaged in these cultural phenomena, exploring their creative potential, which he transforms and customises using his own style.
