Poster Monday: The lost Paradise / EVE and GMO
The first Poster Monday spot of the day belongs to Gyula Molnár from Hungary. The poster makes reference to the history of the tree of knowledge of good and evil from the Bible, except the story takes place in our current times: Adam lost (only one paradise) But Eve is not sorry about that situation; she has sinned, and she says: nothing GMO and human plastic, only natural, food and erotics. Go is not Good, but it was born and it has a father called knowledge. God then banishes ‘the man’ from the Garden of Eden and then the GMO is banished as well.
Gyula tell us, “I think the poster is the king of the graphic design. But at the moment not to important média. But very, very important the visual language of the poster. There is a new visualisation to the picture culture”.
Gyula Molnár is a graphic designer and art teacher. His first posters are characteristic Pop Art works, later he switched to drawing and painting in a very detail oriented style. In 1983 he designed a famous Hungarian travel poster, displaying an interesting emblem of the country. His posters are often provocative and erotic. He prefers vivid, bright colors, like pink, yellow and blue. Today he is a member of the Hungarian Poster Association (MPT). He is retired from teaching but he is still very active as a artist. His newest works focus on provocative topics of sex and politics.
