Jan Młodożeniec

(born in 1929, died in 2000) - poster and graphic designer, painter and master of Polish poster design. Author of over 300 posters, book covers, illustrations and drawings. Graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 1955 under Professor Henryk Tomaszewski. Specialized in book and magazine lay-out, studio graphic work, and in posters since 1953. He cooperated with theatres, museums, publishing houses and others. 

Bright, vivid colours, humour and his ability to summarize the subject in one significant artistic symbol are characteristic of his works. He was constantly experimenting. His colourful posters distinguish logic of composition and the precision of simple drawing which surrounds blots of intense and pure colour.
