A great and a little bit unusual poster made by the Danish artist Bjørn Wiinblad.
The poster is a campaign poster for the "The National Association Fighting Against Eye Diseases" (Landsforeningen til Bekæmpelse af Øjensygdomme) and the headliner "Øjet - værn om det" can be translated into "The eye - protect it".
You can clearly see that the eye is in focus on the poster but more important - what the eye is able to see and transform into experiences and wonderful images. To stress out the importance of eye Wiinblad added the colorful nature with its animals and the beautiful sunset on the poster.
The craft of Wiinblad is often colorful, lush and full of humor. He was inspired by the sumptuous oriental style far from the Nordic stylish line. This artwork is differently true to his special line.
The views on his works are to this day very divided, but interest in his finer things are unrelenting - especially abroad (particularly the U.S., Japan, Germany and Norway). Bjørn Wiinblad's contemporaries were not exactly inclined to acknowledge his way to work, so his position as an artist has been a bit special. Globally, Bjørn Wiinblad is one of the very best selling Danish artists. He is (among other museums) represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
