Superman 1968 CCCP / USA by Roman Cieslewicz Original vintage Superman style poster: CCCP USA by the legendary graphic designer Roman Cieslewicz featuring bold, colorful Superman mirror images depicted as Cold War rivals. USSR (CCCP / Soviet Union) and America Supermen running alongside each other against a bright yellow background. This work was also used as a cover image for Opus Magazine in 1968. Good condition. Medium: Silkscreen in colors affixed to linen backing Dimensions: 24 x 34.75 inches (including backing) Condition: Bold, bright colors; only minor signs of handling; otherwise very good condition Unsigned from an edition of unknown Published by Georges Fall, Paris. Printed by Serg, Paris. About the artist Roman Cieślewicz was born in Lwow, Poland in 1930 (d. 1996). He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Cracow in 1955, moved to France in 1963 and became a citizen in 1971. He worked for several press and publishing houses, including Elle, Vogue and Opus, and various cultural organisations, such as the Festival d’Automne and the Pompidou Centre. A professional militant, Cieslewicz avoids the groups that are active and influential in France: the admen, the Swiss school, the ‘politicos’. Yet it was he who introduced the Polish poster to the country, unleashing all those influences which continue even now to determine French poster design, particularly in the political, social and cultural fields. Though his approach is comparable with that of the Polish school, Cieslewicz has created his own technique and language, which he applied to posters, publications, photomontages and illustration. His graphic ideas were expressed in a haunting and incisive style. His output was prolific, his approach disturbingly free, with accidental elements permitted to challenge the typographical order.
