Culture and the Future
Serge Hélénon was born in 1934 in Fort-de-France (Martinique). His engravings are an invitation to meditation on the human image and more especially that of the African - his condition, attitudes and distinctive features. His carborundum cutting (Goetz method) reflects a heritage rich in signs. Hélénon reins in his impulsive force by the subtle application of flat colour tints checked by black lines. The poster was produced in cooperation with the International Association of Art, from a lithograph published by Vision Nouvelle.
