Refreshments and drinks in Soviet style will be served
Soviet-era posters have been representations of official ideology. Regardless of the ultimate failure of the Soviet experiment to create a more humane and just society, the quality of the graphic arts involved in promoting this vast experiment have become treasures of graphic design. In every Soviet poster there is expressiveness and high graphic quality. The attention to details is awesome.
At the end of the Soviet era, the visual language that had been developed through decades was employed to encourage a reform within the Soviet system. The reform ultimately failed, leading to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
We present the posters of 1987-1990. It was very dramatic period in Russian history: Perestroika and the sunset of Soviet power took place then, leading to the new Russian Federation.
All works are available for sale.
