Description

The Cheval de Fête design by Jan Bajtlik joyfully pays tribute to the posters of the Polish School from the 1950s to the 1970s. The artists of Warsaw broke with the era’s conventions to illustrate films, plays, concerts and exhibitions. The key words were: simple lines and emblematic figures. Cockades, ribbons and geometric patterns evoke the power of these creations. Here, the Cheval de Fête design is worked in four different colors to offer a play on its graphic lines.
