The Morbid Charm of Roman Cieślewicz

Roman Cieślewicz was a Polish-born, French-naturalized graphic designer whose gifts were most keenly exemplified by his poster art work. He had an unremitting obsession with the circular form, disembodied human heads, the colors red & black, and exploring the relationship between the image and the text to amplify the message of the project. To “steer the eye,” was his oft-stated artistic goal. He died in 1996.

W. Somerset Maugham Looked Good on Paper

Novelist, playwright, physician, and British spy, W. Somerset Maugham, was an honorably unique cocktail of professions and enthusiasms. Blessed with natural gifts of wit, charm, and poise, his works offered an air of dignity and class prepared expressly in distinguished, middlebrow masterstrokes - his cherished body of work was just as much an appeal to the wade of the commonwealth as it was to the academic faculty lounge. He believed that art was the liberation of the soul and, evidenced by the myriad of Maugham portraits presently adorning the walls of galleries across Europe, this dictum has manifested with the liberation of Maugham’s creative spirit that rests in the souls of artists interdisciplinarily, and intergenerationally.
