This year, Andrzej Pągowski, one of the most prominent Polish graphic and poster artists, celebrates the 40th anniversary of creative body of work. On that occasion, the Master organizes an exhibition at the W-arte! Open Art Space at Łowicka 56/3. The exhibition of selected works from a different stages of his career will be accompanied by a competition for graphic designers.
The great career of Andrzej Pągowski was launched by a poster for the play “Mąż i Żona” (“Husband and Wife”) by Aleksander Fredro, directed by Adam Hanuszkiewicz and staged in the National Theatre. Completed in 1977, his first printed work was rewarded with the bronze medal at the VIII Biennale of Graphic Design in Brno. Forty years later, along with the Master we challenge graphic designers.
The subject of the contest is designing a poster for the same play of Aleksander Fredro.
The results will be announced on March 31 and the winner will receive a prize of PLN 1,500, while his work will be exhibited in our venue alongside the masterwork of Andrzej Pągowski, starting from April 7, the day of an official opening of the exhibition in the presence of the Master himself.
