This year is special for S. Eidrigevičius. The long-awaited museum named after him will be opened in Panevėžys on May 31st and in July the artist will celebrate his 75th birthday.

Poster of the exhibition


Stasys Eidrigevičius is a world-renowned graphic artist, poster artist, painter, photographer, sculptor, scenographer, designer and writer. In Warsaw, where he moved in 1980 and where he debuted early in his career with book miniatures, including book tabs, he soon fell in love with the theater poster. Stasys himself remembers that in Poland that year there were many theater premieres in local theaters, so there were many places where the poster could be hung. After all, the poster has to live on the street and then he began to experiment with how to convey his thoughts and artistic images on the poster, trying to make a poster that would be noticed by buyers.

His first steps in the field of poster art were very well received by critics and viewers. Also, the images on all his posters are Stasys’ world. Directors have always trusted the artist and this is the secret of his wonderful posters, which were created with pleasure and without pressure, often winning awards in various international competitions.
