Wardrobe master, set designer and movie poster artist of Russian origin, Boris Konstantinovitch Bilinsky came to Paris, France in the 1920's to become a pioneer of the modern film poster. One of his main contribution to movie poster art was the integration of text as part of the visuals itselves. He created about fifty movie posters from the 1920's to the 1940's, among them four different posters for the film Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1926). The exact number of movie posters signed by Boris Bilinsky is still a mystery.
