A poster advertising a jazz festival in Copenhagen in 1983. Per Arnoldi's rich and vibrant colours were a direct expression of the music on offer. The word 'Jazz' stretches along the saxophone as though part of the resonating instrument or the musical notation. The poster is characteristic of Arnoldi's work, with its mastery of simplified composition and radiant use of colour.
