Born in Kattowitz, Poland, Roman Klonek’s inspiration draws from his love of old fashioned cartoons, especially East European Styles. In the 1990s he studied Graphic Arts in Duesseldorf and discovered his passion for woodcut printing.
For the past 10 years Klonek has designed posters using wide range of whimsical creatures, who are mostly half animal/half human, and usually in awkward situations. In his work you will find a bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore and pop.
Here are some samples of his woodcutting work…
