There is a certain misconception about the role of experiment in poster art. This is partly because experiments can lead to renouncement of equilibrium, an escape from the well known, safe areas and result in the lack of artist’s own, recognizable style. However, for me, the unknown has an intricate, inspiring quality, which makes experimentation perhaps the most essential component of any creative process. Without it there can be no progress, development or future. I am happy that I do not know what will happen tomorrow and that there is always something new ahead. After all, together with selflessness and freedom, experiments make the creative process a state in which we cannot assume or exclude anything.
The Krakow exhibition will present 50 works created at different times, places and for different reasons. Some of the posters were designed for festivals and exhibitions whereas others were solely inspired by current or personal matters. Every work has a story and each is a kind of experiment; how successful these experiments are you can judge for yourself.
