33e Festival Jazzdor

HELMO


Selected for the 28th International Posters Competition of Chaumont, 2019.

The subject of this screen-printed poster is put very simply: Strasburg at night, sometime in November. A huge sphere enlivened by colour, light and matter is floating in a grey sky. This image is at the same time figurative and symbolic, abstract and allegoric. The text is placed around this sphere, the main subject – the festival, where the complexity of the image, the singularity of the festival are played. The effect of the colours is achieved by means of a sophisticated printing process called “machine gradation” where in one passage, several pure colours can be printed. These gradients vary according to the ink that is added between the passages.
Imagine bumping into this poster on a street corner in Strasbourg one gloomy November evening….
