In stark contrast to the poster art of his time, with all its photos and typographical effects, the artist created an unusually coherent world, constantly guided by Mies van der Rohe’s maxim, Less is more. He experimented with a radical economy of means, based on the rudimentary use of line and the emotional charge of colour – coloured inks, screen prints or watercolours.

His vocabulary consisted of a few basic signs – arrows, human forms, masks, eyes, hands, birds, etc. – which he combined in his projects, experimenting ad infinitum with synecdoche and metamorphoses, all laced with humour and poeticism.

The exhibition featured a selection of the artist’s most beautiful and rarest posters, together with previously unseen sketches and watercolours which illustrate his creative process.
