The latest exhibition at the graphics and poster gallery on Warsaw’s Hoża Street features works by three artists who hail from the famous Młodożeniec family. Jan Młodożeniec, son of poet Stanisław Młodożeniec, is a poster designer, painter and visual artist. He is the father of visual artist Piotr and painter Stanisław.

The father and sons have produced a lot of posters, book covers, drawings, prints and paintings. Each of the three has made a major contribution to the history of Polish art. Working with the Czytelnik and Iskry publishing houses, Jan Młodożeniec designed memorable covers for books by great Polish writers, Zły by Leopold Tyrmand and Pierwszy krok w chmurach by Marek Hłasko.

Coexistence, a poster which the Museum of the Seam in Jerusalem commissioned from Piotr Młodożeniec, was exhibited in many countries and later incorporated into the stage design on a concert tour by U2.

Stanisław Młodożeniec, who has lived and worked in New York since 1983, is mainly famous as a painter. His trademark are expressive compositions and figurative paintings which provide viewers with a peek into the rhythms of the city that never sleeps.

Works displayed at the gallery were produced using different techniques and include drawings, posters and paintings. The three Młodożeniec artists come across as independent individuals who nevertheless share many similarities and inspire one another.
