CYRK...original contemporary/vintage art posters are more than striking images created by the artistic geniuses of the world-famous Polish School of Posters. Acclaimed as the best in contemporary poster art, CYRK posters are the artists' interpretation and commentary on society, often communicating to the viewer camouflaged political and/or social messages - hidden meanings.
During the Communist era, the golden age of the Polish School of Posters, the Polish Government financially supported and encouraged poster art: sponsoring the 1st International Poster Biennale (1966), opening the world's first poster museum (1968) and treating poster artists favorably. Consequently, Polish posterists - being well-paid, highly-regarded and given much autonomy - became the spokespeople of society as their posters became the primary art form of the nation.
