About The Poster: Polish posters have come to stand apart from the advertising design conventions fostered in Europe during the 20th century. It was during the communist regime, a time when culture was closely monitored by the state, that Polish artists found liberation in poster art. Ironically, this foremost public artform became ground for individual expression. During that period, the cultural institutions (of theatre and cinema especially) flourished as they were funded by government agencies. Artists freshly out of the fine arts academy flocked towards poster production as the demand for this art was rapidly growing. The result became some of the most unique and expressive posters the world has ever seen - and artworks in themselves.
This poster was created by the well-known Polish graphic artist, painter and academic Jan Aleksiun. Aleksiun has three post-doctorate degrees and is an award-winning laureate in the field of poster, graphics and drawing, including the prize of the (Polish) Minister of Culture and Art from 1994.
Poster is in overall excellent condition, ready to frame. From a private collection.
