Chaz Maviyane-Davies is one of the most widely respected, prolific and empathetic designers in the international poster arena. His work is powerful, meaningful — and deceptively simple as he is emboldened to mix images and messages in striking ways. The images that he continues to create raise awareness around very important societal topics. One look at his very impressive list of achievements and the many works he has produced throughout an illustrious career, and one can tell that there is a rhythm here. A recurring of interests that are real-world concerns. Social causes that Chaz feels compelled to shine light upon. Chaz has long understood the power of graphic design: in the right hands — and minds — to be able to make images and messages that speak to basic human rights and needs.

AIGA Boston has partnered with The Fort Point Arts Community Gallery to showcase Chaz’s work from September 12th to 29th, following his Fellow celebration at the venue. Please note that gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and by appointment.
The curated show features posters from Chaz’s lifelong career. The thought-provoking body of work uses original imagery to engage us in the conversations of our time and urge us to question things we might take for granted. Chaz’s work touches on topics that span politics and the environment as well as humanity and consumerism.
Chaz’s bio can be found in our Fellow announcement. This year, AIGA Boston named Chaz Maviyane-Davies and Jan Moscowitz AIGA Fellows. Jan’s celebration will be held in early November.
The AIGA Fellow Award program is a means of recognizing designers who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in practice and conduct within their local or regional design community.
