   Mieczyslaw Gorowski (1941-2011)

    These posters stimulate people to think, to look for hidden content. People are looking at them and ... they become co-creators. Because the poster is not clear, you have to devote a little time to its interpretation. I, an artist, have made my part, and now the viewer, someone who is obviously not a passive spectator has to activate him/herself intellectually and emotionally to be able to properly read the poster. The viewer has his thoughts on this, on what he/she looks at, and fortunately this is the way it goes.

    Graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. Since 1966 professor at Cracow's Academy of Fine Arts. Visiting professor at the Design Department of Universite du Quebec Montreal. Conducted design workshops at several universities around the world. Honorary citizen of Ogaki (Japan). Since 1968 he has created over 500 posters, presented on several individual exhibitions and collections in Europe, Canada, United States, Japan and Poland.
