Andrzej Krajewski’s colourful posters of great decorative value, created with the use of various drawing, painting and graphical techniques, form a characteristic, unmistakeable style, which is a creative conversion of pop-art and art déco – the artist’s beloved styles of artistic expression. Whereas condensed in their form, amusing, containing elements of grotesque, erotic contexts, and references to motifs and symbols of pop culture, they cause, not pushily, reflection on the conditions of human existence, or simply entertain, charm, and project pure pleasure.
