POSTER MONDAY: No War
Last place for September goes to Mikhail Lychkovskiy and his poster “No war”. He is the contemporary designer and poster artist. His works are based on typographic treatment and mixing of national graphic styles.
“The poster was made in the last days of February this year and it relies on the aesthetics of designers, whom I consider saints for various reasons. To pay tribute to Peter Bankov, I used acrylic paint, a tired brush and a broken toothpick. The rocket peels off like a sticker (or like a plaster) — to honor Shigeo Fukuda, as a designer who survived a terrible war and left the strongest statements about it. I don’t really believe that people who start wars can listen to the sayings on the poster. But. In a sense, the work was done out of helplessness and to overcome helplessness. This is a question that is important to ask yourself and find an answer to it: What can you do to stop the war? You can always do at least something to make the world a better place (or at least not make it worse)” tell us Mikhail.
