THE GRAPHIC AND FINE ART OF POLAND'S JERZY JANISZEWSKI

There is no better example of the art of protest and political change than the now iconic logo Jerzy Janiszewski created for the Solidarity trade union movement in 1980.. Janiszewski’s graphic design --- with its original typeface, blood-red letters and the Polish flag emerging out of the letter “N” (for nation) --- was both visually powerful and inspirational, quickly becoming a generic symbol of freedom and democracy recognized throughout the world.

Among the 25 works on display in this first retrospective of Janiszewski’s work will be the very first imprint of the logo, signed by Solidarity’s leader, Lech Walesa. Other hand drawn and historic graphic imprints of the logo signed by Janiszewski, never before exhibited, will also be displayed and these will be offered for sale.
