from the show Top News ONE can spot any number of posters while walking on the street in India Garish movie posters tuition class advertisements and vague-sounding job posters — all have their place But these stand in stark contrast to what is called the Polish Poster School a movement that started in the mid ’50s in Poland “It was characterised by posters that weren’t just effective communication tools but crossed over the boundary of design to become art” state Magdalena Frankowska and Artur Frankowski curators of the exhibition “Eye on Poland” at Mumbai’s Bhau Daji Lad Museum The exhibition showcases around 60 posters by contemporary Polish graphic designers in addition to their books exhibition catalogues and CD and vinyl record covers “The idea behind the exhibition is to show the viewer a wide range of design strategies that reflect the richness in current Polish graphic art” say the duo Moonmadness a Poland-based graphic design company is one such example Their posters often play around with the placement between letters using their shapes to catch the viewer’s attention One of their posters is for a jazz and experimental music festival called Jemp The letters J E M and P are placed in such a way that they hardly seem like letters at all but rather part of the instruments that feature on the poster The graphic design company Hipopotam Studio which has made images of maps is another instance of information-turned-art Fun drawings of animals landscapes and cultural icons make them more appealing According to Lokesh Karekar a Mumbai-based graphic design artist the posters in “Eye on Poland” use styles not usually seen in Western Europe “Graphic designers from the West use a very structured approach They follow their client’s instructions to put out a clear message that keeps their audience in mind Indian posters use loud colours and decorative designs to catch attention” says Karekar “However graphic artists from Poland pay attention to the essence of the topic and create something based on their own interpretation of it” continues Karekar Using individual artistic expressions is seen as being more effective and appealing to the viewer “The music posters in the exhibition bring out the exact emotion the band or performance is supposed to inspire” says Karekar Sam Kulavoor another Mumbai-based graphic designer agrees adding “The Polish posters are very conceptual — they are not as direct as posters you would normally find” Although artists such as Henryk Tomaszewski Roman Cielewicz Jan Lenica and Waldemar Wierzy set the scene for Polish graphic art with their vibrant colours and expressive styles this past decade has seen a dynamic development in Polish art say the curators The emergence of new cultural institutions and events means that younger graphic designers are inspired to explore new means of expression — while keeping in mind the innovative character of the Polish Poster School “It’s more in the realm of fine art than graphic design” says Karekar The exhibition is on till July 31 For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Published: March 13 2017 4:07 pm

disappearing-message app prompted them to jump in “I bought it even when I was pretty positive I would not make a profit in the short run but just because I am a fan of the product” said Chris Roh a 25-year-old software engineer in San Francisco who has only been trading stocks for about a month on Robinhood a mobile trading app popular among millennials Snap sold shares at $17 a piece in its IPO

customer bases such as action-camera maker GoPro Inc social games company Zynga Inc and English soccer club Manchester United Plc have in the past attracted fans to dabble in their IPOs But the wildly popular Snapchat – with an average of about 158 million daily active users – appears to be taking the enthusiasm to another level some analysts and brokers said “One of the non-fundamental reasons driving the stock is that many millennials purchased Snap shares at inflated levels due to their preference for the product” said Shebly Seyrafi managing director at FBN Securities “That is not due to a real understanding of the number or valuation” Snapchat’s users mostly in the 18-34 age range coveted by advertisers spend an average of 25 to 30 minutes on the app and visit it more than 18 times a

halls – the citadels where the magic unravels on the silver screen For prior to the advent of internet that has crammed the entire entertainment space into the smartphone cinema halls were so indispensable that it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call them temples where people came week after week to worship their favourite stars to live life along with them to imitate their fashion and style statements and to yes find an escape from the grind and churning of everyday life And temples indeed were these halls as they provided succour and solace in the form of inexpensive entertainment to the toiling masses who otherwise had little reason to cheer in the decades following independence in 1947 The story of a cinema hall from that era is therefore not the story of a mere brick and mortar structure – it’s the story of the spirit of these temples of entertainment “Delhi Four Shows” by National Award winning film critic and journalist Ziya us Salam is a rivetting story of the city’s cinema halls over the decades Each hall has a story of its own starting from its inception to its time of glory and then decline The book scrupulously chronicles each crest and trough in every cinema hall’s life in and around Delhi The narrative is deceptively simple Deceptively because beneath the first layer of plain narration the reader is taken through a vivid experience of hopes and desires of hardships and failures of grit and commitment and of course the story of a never-say-die spirit of these citadels of entertainment “Delhi Four Shows” takes a slice out of the life from the golden era replete with interesting anecdotes and detail that transport the reader to that era Those who have watched films in single screen halls till they vanished from the scene can almost hear the sounds and senses oozing out of Ziya’s narrative The book celebrating the experience of watching films in single-screen era – many of whom have either ceased to exist or are on their last legs – is a story of thousands of people whose lives those cinema halls touched: owners staff patrons film distributors and everyone else who has been associated with these halls There is another aspect: To GenY
