Artist: Eidrigevicius, Stasys
About the artist: Born in 1949, Eidrigevicius Stasys has lived in Poland since 1980. He works in painting, book illustration, theater design as well as poster design and studied at the Institute of Fine Arts in Vilna.
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 International Puppet Theatre in Bielsko-Biala "The International Festival of Puppetry Art has been organized by the Banialuka Puppet Theatre since 1966. During the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s Bielsko-BiaLa (Poland) was the only locality in Europe, which acted as a meeting spot for theatres from the East and the West, and created conducive conditions for a confrontation of the European puppet theatre with that of the rest of the world. it was also the site of a combination of theatres cultivating archaic forms with the most avant-garde achievements of the contemporary theatre engaged in a quest. Over the years, Bielsko-BiaLa has played host to all the most acclaimed artists— authors of the history of the world puppet theatre, such as Albrecht Roser, Enno Podehl, Claude and Colette Monestier, Henk Boerwinkel, Eric Bass, Joan Baixas, Roman Paska, Richard Bradshaw, Josef Krofta with the famous Drak Theatre, and Peter Schumann with the legendary Bread and Puppet Theatre, as well as many others."
