About Polish Posters:  Beginning in the 1950s and through the 1980s, the Polish School of Posters combined the aesthetics of painting with the succinctness and simple metaphor of the poster. It developed characteristics such as painterly gesture, linear quality, and vibrant colors, as well as a sense of individual personality, humor, and fantasy. It was in this way that the polish poster was able to make the distinction between designer and artist less apparent. 

About the artist: Cyprian Koscielniak studied with the great Polish poster artist Henryk Tomasczewski at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw before beginning his own academic teaching career, first in Poland and later in the Netherlands, where he moved 1986. He is a prolific graphic designer, poster artist, and illustrator.
