On the 19th May 2017 was the opening of the exhibition ‘Mieczysław Wasilewski. Posters etc.’ at the Poster Museum at Wilanów, Poland.
Mieczyslaw Wasilewski is one of Poland’s most prominent graphic designers and illustrators. This artist’s latest works, extremely economical in expression, attest to his profound intellectual introspection, combined with an approach to drawing that involves total concentration, where the skilled gesture and infallible line dominate, in consequence of which we are witness to an extremely conscious, exceptional creativity abounding in artistic culture. Wasilewski’s attachment to the concise brush stroke and matt depth of black ink is testimony not only to a mastery of the tools of his trade, but a fully formed artistic personality. The intellectual approach to be found in numerous drawings, so often enlarged to the poster format, is one that Mieczysław Wasilewski, as an outstanding teacher and academician, has instilled in graphic design students from around the world
This wonderful exhibition is opened until the 16th July 2017.

Exhibition curator: Mariusz Knorowski.
