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.
About the Artist: Mieczysław Wasilewski is a graphic designer, poster creator, and illustrator, who, like many of his contemporaries, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw with the great Polish poster designer and professor Henryk Tomaszewski. His works are in the collections of numerous poster museums, both in Poland, Japan and France, as well as in many private galleries worldwide.
