Waldemar Świerzy on being a student

“I became its youngest student. In the devastated Poland of that time there were a lot of fenced off bomb sites. And these were pasted over with posters, designed by such people as Henryk Tomaszewski. My pals and I decided we weren’t going to wait around, like painters, until the paint was dry and then hope that somebody would exhibit us. Better to have 10,000 copies instantly posted up everywhere, from small villages to the city of Warsaw.”
