About the Poster: Contemporary Polish circus posters emerged in the early 1960s as a genre of the Polish School of posters. They are characterized by their display of aesthetic qualities such as strong colors, metaphors, animals, humor and linear designs.

They are usually based on a single theme and not meant to be advertisements - more like an attempt to interest the passerby in an upcoming circus. Circus posters, whether Polish or American, are considered highly collectible and with images as strong as these, we can certainly see why.

About the Artist: Born in 1922, Wiktor Gorka graduated from the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts in 1952. During his career he worked for the major pulblishing houses and film distributors in Poland, and earned several prizes at poster exhibitions internationally. Notably, he won the silver medal at the 2nd Poster Biennale in Katowice (1967) and was awarded the Jose Guadelupe Posada Merit Award at the International Biennale in Mexico (2000). Wiktor Gorka passed away in 2004.
