Hommage A Waldemar Swierzy

Today’s post is sadly a hommage to a brilliant Polish poster designer, Waldemar Swierzy, who passed yesterday, aged 82, leaving the art and design community with a great remorse.

Swierzy was one of the most famous Polish poster artists, a father to world known Polish School of Poster, a master of expression and inspiration to a whole generation of creatives.

Winner of world’s biggest poster Biennale, including Versaille (France), Copenhagen (Denmark), Sao Paulo (Brasil), Los Angeles (USA) and many others.  May he be an unforgotten and constant inspiration for young artists.

Some of his tremendous works here:

Powyżej: z żalem poświęcam dzisiejszy post zmarłemu wczoraj Waldemarowi Swierzemu, jednemu z twórcow Polskiej Szkoły Plakatu

Mistrzu, obyś zawsze był inspiracją dla twórców i wzorem dla młodych w promowaniu kraju na światowej scenie artystycznej [*]
