Crazy For Swierzy

Waldemar Swierzy, one of the most dynamic Polish movie poster designers of the 20th Century, tackled some of Hollywood’s greatest 70’s and 80’s movies (and American Jazz artists) with his striking, abstract “only in Polish” designs.

Oh yeah, and if you like Swierzy’s brush-tastic take on The Muppets Movie, it’s for sale at Film/Art.

The Art of film/art

The Film/Art Gallery in Los Angeles has a cool new page up now detailing the transition of movie poster advertising from the feel good 50’s to the Mad Men-esque explosion of photography in the 60’s and 70’s. And there’s also a nice mention of film/art’s tasteful proprietor, Matthew McCarthy, in The New York Times!
