A familiar figure to Parisians for the spectacularly coloured posters he created for the “Paris quartier d’été” festival from 2007 to 2009, Michel Quarez occupies a unique position on today’s graphic design scene. This veritable craftsman of advertising posters is now showing 78 posters in the Forney library. Before everything else, Michel Quarez is a painter, an artist who adapts totally to the poster, which he conceives as a monumental work of art. His manner of applying great swathes of saturated colour triggers a visual shock that is further reinforced by his frequent use of fluorescent inks. He doesn’t believe in superfluous details: the simplicity of his images brings primitive art to mind, leaving an impression that becomes a real riot of colour. Michel Quarez has also created what is actually an unprecedented arrangement of poster art, repeating nearly 2,000 copies of the same poster along a ten kilometre route. This artistic intrusion into the cityscape will also stay in place as long as the exhibition remains open to the public.
