Ola Niepsuj’s exhibition “Tyle ile trzeba” (As much as necessary) is an overall presentation of posters from the last decade, designed for films, concerts, exhibitions and festivals.
The posters presented at the exhibition will showcase the various design techniques used by the author, starting from the first fully analogue works on a photocopier, to collages made by hand and on a computer, to projects entirely drawn on a digital tablet. Lettering compositions with illustrative accents will intertwine with illustrative structures. Seemingly imperfect and random forms are the result of the search for a precise language for each poster theme. As a result, we can see various and ambiguous studies, anecdotal and affecting the imagination of the audience.
