Fangor – the artist who bucked the trend

Wojciech Fangor is known to many as the father of Polish poster art. He was the first man to wrench art from the ‘cultural classes’ and hand it to the general public, and stunned authorities into submission with his blunt refusal to toe the party line, prefering to create his work in a recognisably European style which was at once his own and a far cry from the demands of Soviet Realism.

This new exhibition at the National Museum in Kraków presents almost 200 of Fangor’s works, marking his 90th birthday. It will be on in the temporary exhibtions room the main branch of the museum, al. 3 Maja 1, until January 6.
