Polish CYRK Poster - Horse Riding Acrobat R1982, Urbaniec

Wonderfully inventive artwork by Maciej Urbaniec features on this original Polish CYRK (circus) poster. Sumptuous, rich colours.

The ‘Cyrk” circus poster in Poland appeared for the first time in 1962 when the ZPR (Zjednoczone Przedsiębiorstwa Rozrywkowe, or United Entertainment Entreprises), the state agency that oversaw the circus, commissioned leading artists from the Polish School of Posters to develop a modern approach to the circus poster.

The ZPR wanted a new look for the circus poster to complement the circus’ efforts to upgrade its image. Not intended to advertise specific performances, they, rather, celebrated the essence of the circus through rich artistic expression with designs typically featuring clever metaphors, bold colours and humour. Heavy in symbolism, provocative and highly original the designs remain contemporary to this day and continue to gain appreciation.

This vintage poster from its second, and final official, print run in 1982 and is sized 26 x 38 1/2 inches. It is in Rolled, Excellent/Near Mint condition.
