Zbigniew Kaja (1924 - 1983)
Pigasus presents a retrospective of Zbigniew Kaja, who has died in 1983. In his lifetime Kaja was renowned as one of the most important artist of Polish School of Poster but later he was unfortunately almost forgotten.
It is difficult to find his works today. The family of Zbigniew Kaja tries for many years to archive his estate. This attempt is sometimes unsuccessful while a lot of artist's works are unsigned and spread around the world.
In our August exhibition we will present around 40 Posters by Zbigniew Gaja.
