Air France Orients Poster

France, c. 1981
24 x 39 in (61 x 99 cm)
ID #FF1C-L-13
This extremely cool poster advertises travel to the East. A fish is shown with an artistically designed skeleton. A mixture of patterns and textures is what makes this so fantastic -- the fish is made out of an oriental rug and much of the background is made up of traditional watercolor. 
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 multi-media 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.
