AntikBar is coming to the Air Tattoo

Today we caught up with Kirill,  poster enthusiast and creator of AntikBar. Specialising in original vintage posters and graphic design, covering a variety of subjects - travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war and propaganda. Kirill tells us, ''Posters are a true form of art with a purpose as they were designed to deliver a particular message.''

We really can't wait to see what AntikBar bring along, as we are hoping to find a gem of our own.


How did you come up with your business idea?

I started out collecting original vintage posters and, when my passion took over, I decided to set up AntikBar.co.uk as an online poster gallery.

What do you most love about vintage?

I love the variety of artwork styles, particularly the innovative and stylish Constructivist and Art Deco movements from the early 20th century and the more carefree and fun retro style during the 1950-60s.


What piece of vintage/retro item could you not live without?

My 1977 pinball machine!


How far do you travel to collect your unique items?

It depends; this week, for example, I visited the Netherlands to meet someone with a large poster collection. I’ll stop by places when we’re on holiday too and I’ve built up a network of other collectors and dealers if I’m looking to source something specific for a client.


What can we expect to see at your stall in the Vintage Village at the Royal International Tattoo?

A variety of original vintage posters, including air force, military, World War Two, car racing, skiing and others from around the world, primarily from the 1930-60s, with a few general vintage/retro posters from our extensive collection – travel, advertising, cinema, sport etc.


If you would like to meet Kirill to pick up a one off print, come to the Royal International Air Tattoo or go straight to his website.
