A nice modernistic poster made for the Danish newspaper, Politiken.
The newspaper is the political correct and is associated with city life, culture and education. The artist, Per Arnoldi, designed the poster with glasses from the 1920s - a period in world history where many of news paper's value was celebrated and founded. Notice how the logo of "Politiken" is reflected in the glasses from the eye of the beholder. In the top is the Danish text "læs" which means "read".
Per Arnoldi is a self-taught, world-renowned modernist artist. He is particularly known for his posters and considered one of Denmark's most important poster artists. He is known for a tight and easily recognizable form and color language. As a painter, Per Arnoldi always uses primary colors (red/yellow/blue) on a bed of white - just like on this very poster.
Arnoldi is represented in a number of well known museums in the world including Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Museum of Modern Art in Toyama and Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
This poster is a great contribution to the modernist legacy that (without a doubt) will spice up any wall it is hanged on. The poster is extremely hard to find so if you find yourself in the need of something quite unique - you came to the right place.
The poster is made as a silkscreen/serigraph print which means the colors looks very vibrant and the quality of the print is very high. It is a highly refined proces that takes much longer than typical offset print. However, when the serigraph is finished you can feel the textures on poster almost as if it was a painting.
