The first exhibition of Warsaw's ILLO artists presented at the Pigasus-Gallery in Berlin. The title of the exhibition refers to the stereotype that an illustrator is an aesthete for whom drawing is primarily an act of leisure and pleasure - certainly not a profession appreciated by the society...
Each work has its own story: a sleepless night, a boring evening with a cat, a bunch of money or simply the pure fun of drawing, coloring and creating your own world.
All Play, No Work is the first exhibition of Warsaw's ILLO. Agata Endo Nowcka and Marysia Zaleska, founders of the agency represent the most prominent and interesting Polish illustrators of the young generation. The works show different styles, sensitivity and aesthetics. The young artists, deprived of complexes, boldly conquer the world gaining escalating recognition. Apart from illustrators represented by ILLO the exhibition features such esteemed artist as Tomasz Sadurski, Ola Niepsuj and Maciej Sienczyk.
The exhibition ILLO + guest presents the current trends and ambiences of today's Polish illustration art. May the tablet be in favor of the good old pencil and will these young artists revive the spirit of the old Polish school of poster art and illustration?
