Wlodek Orzel's Poster Gallery

the owner: wlodek orzelrozdroze
   The Poster Gallery, known also as "Polplakat" was opened by Wlodek Orzel in 1993. It settled down in a desolate underground passage "Plac na Rozdrożu" and filled the place with vivid posters. That is how the one and only street gallery of Polish posters came into existence. There, the poster art was exposed to the passers-by, as it used to be during the golden years of Polish poster. In March 2009 the Gallery was cofounded Polish Poster Gallery, BUW at The University of Warsaw Library
