HENRYK TOMASZEWSKI POSTER EXHIBITION

Mon 21 Apr – Sat 3 May

Riverside Studios, London

To mark the centenary of the birth of Henryk Tomaszewski, graphic artist, designer, cartoonist and one of the most important figures of Polish graphic art after the Second World War, The Zacheta – National Gallery of Art has prepared for us a selection of unusually expressive posters. Tomaszewski is known for creating a concept of posters based on visual short-cuts and metaphors, characterized by a painterly and poetic climate, and posters realised from the 60s onwards tending towards greater simplicity and asceticism which became the foundation of the artist’s characteristic graphic language.

This display is part for the bigger exhibition “I’ve been here; I hope the same for you” that is taking place at The Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw from 14 March to 10 June 2014.

Organised by Polish Cultural Institute.

Part of the 12th Polish Film Festival – KINOTEKA in London
