Mr T: The Posters of Jerzy Treutler

Kemistry Gallery and Twarda Sztuka Foundation are proud to present Mr T: The Posters of Jerzy Treutler – a celebration of Treutler’s work from the 60s & 70s , and classic Polish poster design

Treutler is recognised internationally for his participation in the School of Polish Posters. From his graduation from the Warsaw Fine Art Academy in 1955 to the 1990s, Treutler designed film, exhibition, sport and national information posters for various central agencies; creating over 150 posters, several book covers and numerous corporate logos and illustrations.

Treutler was able to create powerful imagery, inspired by movies and events without actually detailing them: no head shots and movie stills, no specifically direct connection to the title. His work utilises bold colour, simple imagery and vivid lines to underline the strength of the message, and is distinguished by an abstract style typical of the Polish poster artist. Treutler’s posters are as fresh and engaging today as when they were first produced.
