Fine Art lithograph, hand signed by the artist.
One of the most prolific artists of his generation, Waldemar Swierzy’s innovative – and often controversial – artwork captured the world’s attention and cast him at the center of an exciting, evolving graphic arts movement that began in Europe and spread across the globe over the last fifty years.
Swierzy graduated from the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts in 1952. His early work was created for cultural and public events – film, theatre, circuses and music performances. Promoters demanded eye-catching designs for advertisements, and Swierzy’s bold, vibrant style earned him an international reputation. His awards included the Grand Prix Toulouse-Lautrec, Paris; Hollywood Reporters Poster Awards; Gold Medal International Biennial of Posters, Poland; 1st prize at the 2nd International Biennial of Posters, Finland; Gold and Bronze Medal at the International Jazz Salon “Jazzpo”; and the Gold Medal at the Polish Poster Biennial, Poland.
