Rafal Olbinski and the Opera
The forty posters produced by Rafal Olbinski as opera advertisements are a wonderful conglomeration of disparate art forms. During the twentieth century we have become accustomed to the blurring of boundaries between art and design. In this context Olbinski's work is significant for the particular combinations and the ultimate success of his final artistic solutions combining graphic design, painting and opera. When handled by Olbinski, what might seem improbable, results in a thoroughly sensitive and outstanding artistic object both conceptually and formally.
