Original Polish poster art
Noteworthy for: Galeria Plakatu's prized print is an original 1960 poster for Andrzej Wajda's 'Niewinni czarodzieje'. Yours for PLN 2,800.
The Polish poster school emerged in the late 50s when artists began to escape the restraints of socialist realism. Its bold designs - influenced by both folk art and modernist movements such as expressionism - became central to Polish culture.
This fascinating shop brings together the best examples of Polish poster art from the past five decades, most of which are original prints. This is the place to come to if you're after something authentically Polish to brighten up your walls – the only problem is choosing from the thousands of film, theatre, sport, political and advertising posters on offer.
