Bujakiewicz began his artist carrier in Poznań until 1882. Then he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He painted portraits, genre scenes, battle and religious scenes. In his paintings, the influences of the works of Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski are visible, and perhaps Bujakiewicz created his paintings anonymously in his style and at his commission.
