The Polish School of Posters was born in the 1950s and since then has influenced various contemporary graphic designers and visual artists. Combining the aesthetics of painting with the succinctness and simple metaphor of the poster the school significantly influenced the international development of graphic design in poster art. This year’s exhibition features posters from a West Midlands collector Jurek Marks. The selection includes various Polish and international films by masters of Polish Film Poster: Jan Lenica, Franciszek Starowieyski, Henryk Tomaszewski, Jan Młodożeniec and Andrzej Pągowski among others.
