Contrex was just one of the iconic brands Bernard Villemot worked with over the course of his prolific career as a poster artist. Punchy and gaudy, Villemot’s posters teem with slender women, polished forms and sensual poses that brim with a reserved beauty. Bernard Villemot was a French graphic designer known for his work for Bally, Orangina and Air France. His photo- like images utilised elegant lines and an intelligent use of colour that has made his work highly sought after. He is considered to be one of the last great poster designers, and a leader of the art form in his generation.
