Klimowski Poster Book

Iconic Polish posters

In the mid-1970s, Andrzej Klimowski’s fearlessly original artwork caught the eye of leading Polish theater and film companies, for whom he designed some of the period’s most iconic posters. The London-born artist, who moved to Poland at a time when many East Europeans dreamed of going West, went on to create posters for works by filmmakers and playwrights from Scorsese to Altman, Beckett to Brecht.

Drawing on folk art and Polish Surrealism, Klimowski uses techniques including photomontage and linocut to create posters that are filled with metaphor, drama, and originality.

Andrzej Klimowski (b. 1949) studied at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London and at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. He is emeritus professor of illustration at the Royal College of Art in London.
