Poster art by Nicola Simbari (1927 – 2012). Born in San Lucido, Calabria, though raised in Rome, Simbari attended the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma and opened his own studio at the age of 22 at Via del Babuino in the centre of the city. From the outset Simbari undertook commercial commissions alongside work for fine art exhibitions. Many early commissions were illustrations for theatre publicity which led to work for Italian and then international cinema. He had a one man show at Arthur Jeffries Gallery in London from 1957 – 1959.
