Vintage Polish Poster | Na Czeresni | On Top of the Cherry Tree

On the Top of the Cherry Tree is a 1984 Bulgarian comedy-drama film directed by Mariana Evstatieva. The movie is in the “childhood genre”, featuring children in the main parts. The main characters are urban kids and teenagers with busy parents. They wander in the neighborhood in search of stories, usually using their unadulterated imagination. On the Top of the Cherry Tree strengthened Veselin Prahov’s status as a superstar of the Bulgarian cinema from the 1980s. The movie became one of the hits of that time. The poster artist Wiesław Wałkuski was born in Poland in 1956, and started his graphic design education at the Warsaw Academy of Art which he attended from 1976 to 1981. He studied under several design lecturers including Maciej Urbaniec and Teresa Pagowska. At the end of his studies he was employed by Polfilm and Film Polski to produce artwork and cover designs. During this period he also worked with visual studio publishers and numerous theater groups producing artworks. In 1987 he commenced his career as a freelance graphic designer. Today, Wiesław Wałkuski has more than 200 posters to his name and he continues his work as a poster designer, illustrator and painter. He still lives and works in Warsaw. His works are presented at major Polish and international poster exhibitions including some at The Weidman Gallery in West Hollywood, USA.
