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.
Visitors from the Galaxy is a Yugoslav-Czechoslovak science fiction film about a hotel doorman who discovers an ability to make his thoughts come to life. It was directed by Dusan Vucotic.
The artist, Wieslw Walkulski, continues to be an active freelance artist. In the 1980s, he was employed by Polfilm and Film Polski and has gone on to win numerous international awards for this art and design.
