Q&A with Andrzej Klimowski - Sci-Fi-London 9


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Andrzej Klimowski Each year SCI-FI-LONDON looks at a different country and explores its contribution to the science fiction genre. This year focus is given to the Cinema of Poland and they are screening science fiction from Poland with a specific focus on Stanislaw Lem. They are also hosting a Q&A session with the graphic novelist and film poster designer, Andrzej Klimowski.

If you don't know much about Andrzej Klimowski this is your chance to get up close and in the mind of a true visual legend.

Klimowski was born of Polish parents in London in 1949, he trained at the Saint Martin's School of Art before studying at the Academy of Fine Art and working professionally in Warsaw.

His east-European legacy deeply influences Klimowski's work. From the late 1970s to the near present he has designed film and theatre posters, directed short animated films in Warsaw and designed covers and book jackets - for novels by PG Wodehouse , Simon Louvish, Lionel Shriver, Milan Kundera and Kazuo Ishiguro, following his particular 'Polish School' of design.

Polish interpretations for their local audiences have become internationally sought after by fans of both film & art. With some Polish posters surpassing the original versions they have become a cult trend. Klimowski's posters have become highly praised and sought after.




His graphic novels The Depository and The Secret have been published by Faber, as was, Horace Dorlan, in 2007. Klimowski is the Professor of Illustration at the Royal College of Art, London.

The early twentieth century photo-collagists, Surrealism, Dada and Expressionism have obviously been an influence on part of Klimowski's work, but he has developed his own personal style with a combination of fantasy, anxiety, ambiguity and eroticism which keeps his works from becoming mere pastiches.
