The 165th Exhibition Bruno Monguzzi : A Poet of Form and Function February 9(Wed.) - 29(Tue.),2000

"The Presence of Absence: The Photograms in 20 th Century Art," Poster Triennial in Toyama 1991 prizewinner, was my first Bruno Monguzzi. The cleanness of the image, unapproachable dignity struck me. Monguzzi's works are deeply rooted in the Swiss tradition of modern typography, but don't look old or dated. Each piece is a masterwork of expression. Freshness and emotion combined with intelligence. Bold and powerful structures blend with incredible intricacy to create beautiful music. When examined closely, Monguzzi's design style is free of waste. He identifies the core elements of the message and embodies it in a splendid and powerful form. He is an amazing artist whose designs emanate poetry.
