Our company, Contemporary Posters, was formed to introduce, establish and offer for sale in the U.S. original contemporary/vintage graphic design art posters. In Europe and Asia, contemporary/vintage graphic design art posters - like paintings, sculptures, art prints & photographs - long have been recognized, exhibited, bought & collected as art.
A contemporary/vintage poster is an image created after World War II while an antique/vintage poster is an image created from c.1890's (La Belle Époque) through WWII. All graphic design posters are works of art that attract a passerby's attention to dramatically communicate a message - informing, announcing or advertising a product, event or idea they combine words with type, illustration or photography.
During the period from the end of World War ll (1945) until the fall of Communism in 1989, the Polish School of Posters became recognized as the best in contemporary/vintage poster art. Its artists created renowned theater, music, film & CYRK (circus) posters. Since CYRK posters are considered the quintessential posters of the golden age of the Polish School of Posters, Contemporary Posters decided to focus almost exclusively on CYRK... Polish circus/art posters. (See the CYRK Story!)
As you navigate this website, we know you will appreciate the creativity, power and artistry of CYRK posters. And, you will also have the opportunity to buy, collect and/or give as gifts these highly-acclaimed, award-winning contemporary/vintage graphic design art posters - the antique/vintage posters of tomorrow... the art investment for the future!
