Arjan Galema

(1886 - 1974)

Galema was born in Amsterdam and lived in Paris from 1918 until 1925. The city inspired him to produce scenes of the night life and of the city itself. Back in Holland, Galema began his own graphic design studio which meant that he was hardly able to make free work anymore.

One of his clients was the Heineken brewery, for whom he made posters with amongst others images of horses pulling a beer cart.
