WEB POSTER EXHIBITION - Who's Who in Chinese Posters

This page uses a chinese character set to display the designer's name in chinese characters. You may have to install the set gb2312 if the page looks strange on your browser.

When Jiang Hua recently sent me the catalogue of the 1999 poster exhibition "Fashion and Culture" in Ningbo (a city about 200 km south of Shanghai), I was so overwhelmed by the many interesting new posters from China that I decided to make some order in my mind and write down for my own curiosity who is who in chinese posters.

Here is my list. The selection is quite arbitrary - people I met, names that I could remember, poster that stuck in my mind, information that I found in the POSTER BIBLIOGRAPHY, recent prize winners and so on - so if you are not on this page don't panic.

Rather a poster and short biography with a portrait, or a catalogue and I will add your name. Do it quickly because I may have to limit this project if the page gets too big.
