For May’s last Poster Monday spot goes to Agnieszka Węglarska. She is a graphic artist from Warsaw, a Bachelor of Arts and Masters degrees from the Academy of Arts in Warsaw. In 2020, after 20 years as an art director in advertising, she decided to take up art and start working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Inspired by modern architecture and electronic music, she carries out her brainchild – GRAFISK – where form follows fun.
The poster “Vistula (river) is a Woman” was created in 2017, celebrated in Poland as the Year of the Vistula; unfortunately, it coincided with the outbreak of women’s protests in the streets over the political situation, changes in the law, and speaking out about women’s rights. “The more, I wanted femininity to resonate in all its glory. The Vistula is symbolically called the “Mother of all rivers” and the poster is my tribute to Her, who gives life as water” tell us Agnieszka.
