Mexican Mosaic

The Poster Museum in Warsaw's Wilanów district is showing the Meksykańska mozaika (Mexican Mosaic) collection of posters from the International Poster Biennale in Mexico. The works feature a variety of styles and themes connected with Mexico.

The art of the poster played a special formative role in Mexican popular culture. The poster artist, more than creating language, also became engaged in a discourse commenting on reality. The poster accompanied various social, cultural and national events, providing them with a synthetic and modern visual form.

The collection reflects a diversity of artistic and cultural influences. They include pre-Columbian art traditions, iconographic art that developed under the influence of Spanish colonialism in the mid-16th century, and Baroque elements. The posters also refer to Mexicans' love of vivid color, reflected in the country's traditional handicrafts.
