Vlado Martek

Born 1951 in Zagreb, HR
Lives and works in Zagreb, HR

The base of Martek's artistic praxis consists of writing, poetry, and language. By vocation, he is a multimedia conceptual artist, poet and writer, and his oeuvre includes actions, agitations, ambiances, murals, graffiti, texts on his own art, prints, artpostcards, sculptures, poetic objects, paintings, art books and staged photography. Since the 1970s he has worked across different media in order to renegotiate and find new forms of language. Through his work, he offers analytical, critical, ironic and humorous comments on societal structures and constructs. Typically he engages in linguistic subversion, oscillating between the visual arts, poetry and his own artforms of pre- and post-poetry. Solo
