Don Giovanni (1998).Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Cincinnati Opera. Rafal Olbinski (Polish, born 1945). Poster.
Olbinski’s lush images and artwork are layered with complex psychology. He does not paint the landscape of scientific reality, but rather maps the interiors of the mind. Like Salvador Dali and Magritte before him, Olbinski’s work has poetic resonance — he depicts the mind as a theater of dreams, with new attractions around every corner.
