Drawings, illustrations, and book jacket designs.
Andrzej Dudzinski was born in 1945 in Sopot, a suburb of the city of Gdansk. He studied architecture at the Gdansk University of Technology and, later, interior design and graphic arts at the Gdansk State College of Visual Arts. Moving on to Warsaw, he studied in the Academy of Fine Arts in the studio of Henryk Tomaszewski, the father of the world-famous Polish poster school. While still a student, he began publishing drawings in magazines. From 1970 to 1972 Dudzinski lived in London and contributed to such periodicals as Ink, Oz, Frendz,and Time Out. After returning to Poland, Dudzinski quickly became popular thanks to his signature mascot, the wingless bird Dudi, whose nonconforming thoughts he published in Poland's foremost satirical weekly Szpilki. He contributed also to other popular magazines, designed theater and film posters, illustrated children's books, and worked in radio and television.
