The production designer of the Polish Theatre in Wroclaw approached us with a request to perform theatrical horizons (background stage design on canvas) for part III of "Forefathers' Eve" by Adam Mickiewicz. Hand painting horizons is a technique that has been forgotten and supplanted by other techniques in contemporary theatre. Its place was taken by prints and paintings displayed by multimedia projectors. However, the customer wanted to use traditional techniques so that the performance benefited from greater authenticity.
A professional undertaking of hand-painted theatre horizons is accomplished in only a few labs in the world. The specificity of the order required a deep knowledge of painting techniques. The three images that we created had monumental dimensions of 10 x 15 meters. High image quality, durability and possibility to use for many years, as well as resistance to any damage with frequently folding canvas were all requirements.
We developed graphic designs based on old drawings and historical materials from the era. This order was a challenge that brought us great satisfaction, and the customer and recipients were satisfied.
