About The Poster: This series of posters was created by none other than the great Vittorio Fiorucci, a famous Canadian graphic designer and artist, for the annual Storytelling Festival of l'Estrie (Townships region of Quebec). These posters are among the last works Vittorio produced before he passed in 2008. Vittorio's posters are collected worldwide, with works in important museums such as the MoMA. They are graphically stunning and also hold a great deal of cultural value. We think they would great framed and make an excellent (and original) gift.
During the preparation of the 1997 Kyoto Conference on Climate Change, Vittorio was the only Canadian to be invited to create a poster for the event; he was competing amongst the best poster artists in the world. But that was not the first time Vittorio's name was associated with a humanitarian cause; as early as 1967, he created an environmental poster titled "Don't cut the trees". He also made an imaginative statement with his "Women’s Lib" poster and with "Adieu Montréal", an image reflecting the demolition of Montreal's urban heritage."
