"Kamieński likes to mock the artistic tradition, surprisingly juxtaposing the most contradictory styles, such as pop art motifs from the mass media and gesture painting (Idol, 1983) or elements painted in neo-expressionist and cubist manner (Pracownia artysty wg. Courbeta / Artist's Workshop according to Courbet, 1992). The artist juggles conventions and quotations, combines motifs from works by Siemiradzki, Matejko, van Gogh and Picasso and other famous artists in his paintings.
