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 for the Polish movie Diabelskie Szczescie - which translates to Devil's Happiness. A drama about an actor and a series of accidents and betrayals, Diabelskie Szczescie was directed by Franciszek Trzeciak. The black and white composition of this poster is typical of the artist - Jakub Erol.
This poster is in very good condition and ready to be framed.
