Cineast 2018: Polish Film Posters: Kliś Kubica Urbańczyk
Polish cinema (like any other good cinema) provides inspiration to create poster responses. All the posters presented at this exhibition are artistic responses to some of the classic Polish movies. They were designed specifically for the exhibition by artists Łukasz Kliś, Sebastian Kubica and Marcin Urbańczyk, therefore it is their premiere. Each of the authors used a proper set of formal means and techniques of printing; Kubica's posters are drawn, making them even more unique. A universal language of visual communication combined with the Polish inclination towards metaphors, association games, and sometimes striking literalness (as seen in the famous Polish School of Posters), are features found in all of these poster sets. Printing techniques: inkjet printing on coated paper, and low-quantity printing (from 1 to 4 prints).
Exposition is presented in frame of Cineast Film Festival 2018.
