Iluzjon: Polish film and theatre posters

A Celebration of Polish Cinema & Poster Design at 18 Hewett Street, 19-29th October 2012

“Everything starts with the EYE. It must be educated, independent – abstract. ” Henryk Tomaszewski, Poster Artist

Iluzjon is an exhibition that showcases the very best of Polish film and theater posters from the 1960’s and 1970’s, collected by Eye Sea Posters. These posters were commissioned by state controlled film and theater institutions during the communist era in Poland, in order to create alternative imagery to the foreign originals they deemed inappropriate to use as advertising.

It is an awesome vintage posters with distinctive graphic style – bold, colorful, surreal and often with a satirical sense of humor or subversive theme. You can see more of them here > and there’s also an article about the event here >
