Air France Italie Poster

France, c. 1981
24 x 39 in (61 x 99 cm)
ID #FF1C-L-20
This wild poster advertises travel to Italy. The poster is purely formed out of texture -- indentations form an abstract motif of swirls and miniscule patterns. Though this poster would be considered minimalist, it hardly lacks detail!

Year: c. 1981

Artist: Roger Bezombes

Printer: Mourlot

In the early 1970s, Air France commissioned Roger Bezombes to do a series of posters advertising travel with the airline. Bezombes was a multimedia French artist who was known for his vibrantly colored pieces that rivaled the works of the post-impressionists. His quasi-abstract posters are filled with an amazing array of details, from different textures to hidden images. He held an obsession with found objects, creating a new type of collage. Bezombes was talented in many fields — working not only with graphic design, but fashion and sculpting, these mediums often bled into his poster work, forming his own distinct style.
