Wasilewski, Mieczyslaw | 1984 | The Legend of Love


This very special poster by Wasilewski was designed for a 1978 Turkish/Soviet Union film. We are big fans of Wasilewski’s stripped back illustrative minimalism. There’s always more to see than first meets the eye.

You can read a beautiful interview with Wasilewski here (he’s a big fan of Banksy!)

“Today, especially in the times of image-dependent civilization, these short, concise visual statements are even more meaningful than before. Today, when we are flooded with visual blabber, it is poster with capital P, I think, that should be the positive carrier of all positive ideas”
