Film Poster of the Week: “Khrustalyov, My Automotive!” and the Posters of Andrzej Klimowski on Pocket book
A brand new movie poster by Klimowski is an occasion. Born in London to Polish mother and father in 1949, the designer emigrated to Poland in 1973 to check underneath the legendary Henryk Tomaszewski on the Academy of Tremendous Arts. By 1976 he was designing posters for the state-run Movie Distribution Workplace and for the subsequent few years he produced a few of the most indelible Polish posters of the 70s, all in his very recognizable surreal photo-montage model. Returning to the U.Okay. when martial legislation was declared in 1981, Klimowski targeting e book cowl design (most notably for Milan Kundera and Harold Pinter) earlier than changing into an author-illustrator himself, penning graphic novels in ink and brush and linocut, usually in collaboration together with his spouse Danusia Schejbal.
His film posters since 1981 have been few and much between: a sequence of posters for the movies of Jim Jarmusch in 1991-2, a Polish poster for Institute Benjamenta—the primary function movie by his longtime pals the Quay Brothers—in 1995, and a 2010 poster for Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev. The Khrustalyov poster continues the hanging and creative use of linocut that has been his trademark for the previous twenty years: the proper medium for rendering German’s dramatic chiaroscuro.
