About the Poster: Contemporary Polish circus posters emerged in the early 1960s as a genre of the Polish School of posters. They are characterized by their display of aesthetic qualities such as strong colors, metaphors, animals, humor and linear designs. They are usually based on a single theme and not meant to be advertisements - more like an attempt to interest the passerby in an upcoming circus. Circus posters, whether Polish or American, are considered highly collectible and with images as strong as these, we can certainly see why.
About the Artist: Born in Kwiatow, Poland in 1947, Jerzy Czerniawski is a multi-disciplinary artist who works with painting, drawing and posters. Czerniawski studied at the State College of Plastic Art in Wrocław and his posters take pride of place in collections around the world, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
