Posters to José is a personal project. I'm someone who loves poetry and reads Carlos Drummond de Andrade a lot. I chose the poem "José" (1942) to create about some of its verses. The prints are based on the first stanza of the poem.
In my point of view, José is a depressed man who lives in the big city. Anguished, lonely, lost in a past where he has already been happy. The warm color represents that – there was joy where now is everything distortion and darkness. The poem itself says that José is a very strong man. Could he be happy again?
This is a personal project created in 2018.
