“And Still I Rise,” a guest exhibition organized by AIGA Boston, showcases the work of Chaz Maviyane-Davies as he is recognized as an AIGA Fellow. 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.

“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.”

—Frank Baseman, Creative Director and Principal of Baseman Design Associates, Graphic Design Professor at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), and AIGA Fellow

The poster exhibit includes selected work from Chaz’s life long 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. His work touches on topics ranging from politics and the environment to humanity and consumerism.
