Imre Somorjai was a poster artist. He graduated at the Academy of Applied Arts in 1941. Afterwards he worked as a poster designer.
He designed many movie posters in a traditional pictorial realist style. This popular, photo-like style, which originated from the Art Deco, was popular even in the late 1940s. His style somewhat altered in the 1950s, due to the strong influence of the socialist realism.
After this period he was able to adapt to the new tendencies and throughout his career he mostly designed movie posters. He designed many posters during the 1960s, using the new, modern techniques. He was very versatile and worked in many different styles. Around 1970s he designed a few Pop Art posters. .
