I was quite surprised when I first found this poster.
On the poster it is easy to see what kind of person Wiinblad was. A happy, cheerful and relaxed person who cherished life which is also highly visible in his artwork. He also had frequent partys at his house so it is no wonder he is portrayed with a glass of champagne in his hand.
This poster is very unusual as Bjørn Wiinblad himself is rarely seen on his posters - especially before his death. Maybe the poster was used for an exhibition and this poster is a variation without text? But it is easy to see that Wiinblad is not as young as he use to be and this is why I dated the poster to the 1990s.
The craft of Wiinblad is often colorful, lush and full of humor. He was inspired by the sumptuous oriental style which is far from the traditional and minimalist Nordic 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.
