Shuka Bureau’s whimsically exotic posters for Moscow art school

For the last couple of years Russian studio Shuka Bureau has created posters for the intensive summer courses held at the British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow, one of the main design schools in the city. Each set of posters references historical moments or figures in art and this time the paintings of Henry “Le Douanier” Russo, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Mark Chagall have inspired this series.

Communicating the mystery, excitement and possibilities of summer, each one details a colourful and whimsical scene that alludes to the courses in some way. The use of recurring characters in the series creates an obscure, yet playful narrative and stencilled numbers and geometric type tie everything together neatly.
