"The poster is my favorite in all the fields of art I've studied. Once you get into its universe, you feel sort of like Alice in Wonderland. Nothing there looks like what it "really" is. The thing that I appreciate most in the art of the poster is the synthesis of the idea into very simple terms, but which at the same time are subtle, intelligent and clever. Poster art proves the theory that genius is found in the most basic things. As a creative I can say that the poster is a passion and a drug. An artist that once gets involved in poster art has a hard time getting uninvolved. Nor does he or she normally want to."
