Marian Stachurski (1931-2014) a Polish graphic designer studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under Henryk Tomaszewski. He illustrated film posters in the 1950's through to the late 1970's, for both domestic and international films. His distinctive style was bold and colorful in nature. He used simple forms and abstract elements influenced by Polish folk art. I like the posters with owl and bird illustrations depicting the feather friends in varied styles formed using plain lines to free flowing shapes. 

His original Polish movie posters can be purchased from the website called Polish Poster and more can be viewed on Pinterest, thanks to the collectors of his work for sharing.
