Michal Krasnopolski is one of our 30×30 exhibition artists, and in this series of showcases we aim to show and tell you a little more about the artist, their work and why they chose the film they will be creating work for.

Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)

Film Synopsis

A new Disc Jockey is shipped from Crete to Vietnam to bring humor to Armed Forces Radio. He turns the studio on its ear and becomes wildly popular with the troops but runs afoul of the middle management who think he isn’t G.I. enough. While he is off the air, he tries to meet Vietnamese especially girls, and begins to have brushes with the real war that never appears on the radio.

About the Artist

Graphic designer from Warsaw, Poland. Born in 1980, a graduate of the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. Working in advertising since 2002, winner of multiple Polish ad industry awards, his work has been featured in the book ‘Two decades of Polish advertising 1990-2010’. Avid movie junkie and comic book collector. Loves spending his free time with his wife and daughter – and when they fall asleep, enjoys designing movie posters (fan-art or commissioned).

Why did you choose this film?

Two reasons: I like challenges, and this one seems to be a very difficult subject to interpret.
Secondly, I love Robin Williams!

Be sure to check out all of Michal’s work, and we’ll be sure to share some teases of this war classic real soon.
