About the Poster: 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: Andrej Pagowski studied under Waldemar Swierzy at the State College of Fine Arts in Poznan. He has worked as a cartoonist, illustrator and book designer and now owns an agency called Studio P that designs posters.
About the museum: "The Asia and Pacific Museum was established in 1973 on the basis of Andrzej Wawrzyniak’s collection donated to the Polish state. At that time, it numbered 4000 pieces of art and ethnographical objects from Indonesia amassed during his 9-years stay in that country as a diplomat. Such a private collection was unusual in terms of its value and size which was rare at that time. While Andrzej Wawrzyniak was working in the diplomatic service in Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal and Afghanistan, he travelled to almost all countries throughout Asia, Australia and most of Oceania, although it was Indonesia that inspired him the most."
From a private collection, ready be framed.
