Biography

Swiss graphic, illustrator and poster artist Carl Moos was born in München and won the silver medal at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics in the Art Competitions in the category Graphic Arts with his poster Posters. These posters were produced for several Swiss and international competitions, such as the 1928 Winter Games in St. Moritz. He submitted five posters, of which two were shown in the official catalogue. The prize was awarded for his poster Athletics Poster.

Moos founded the Artists' Association The Six, one of the first groups of artists for the marketing of advertising orders. He came to prominence for his series of sports posters, but also illustrated postcards dealing with the soldier’s life and postcards for München breweries. After his education at the Commercial Drawing and Model School in München he first worked as an illustrator for the München daily press. After World War I he left München and settled in Zürich.
