The 9th Festival de Jazz poster by Peter Klasen features a saxophone in the foreground against a vibrant red and industrious backdrop. The 9th installment of the festival took place in Paris in 1988, starting October 31st and lasting until November 7th.
German artist Peter Klasen (1935-Present) is best known for his collage styled Pop Art paintings and prints. Using an airbrush, the artist juxtaposes images of various industrial objects from pressure gauges to doorknobs with sexualized depictions of women. By contrasting these two seemingly polar subjects, the artist successfully confronts themes of confinement, political control and fear. Klasen’s work is included in The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Klasen currently works and resides in Paris, France (Artnet).
