Endi Poskovic

Bosnian (born 1969)

Reflecting on the strategies of early cinema, Eastern European propaganda posters, and classic ukiyo-e block prints, the graphic work of Endi Poskovic merges visual representation with text, often shifting the reading of the imagery through continuous representation and re-contextualization. The amalgam of diverse scenarios and visual narratives in Poskovic's work imply accounts from personal and social histories and reference themes of cultural and environmental shifts, migration and alienation that are at once magnificent and dystopian.

Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1969, Poskovic studied art and music from an early age and performed music of the Balkans at music festivals throughout Europe and the Middle East. A graduate of the Sarajevo School of Music (Diploma 1982-86), the Sarajevo School of Applied Arts (Diploma 1983-86) and the University of Sarajevo-Academy of Fine Arts (B.F.A. 1986-90), Poskovic also studied in Norway (1990-91) on a grant from the Norwegian Government before moving to the United States to continue his graduate education. He holds a graduate degree in printmedia from State University of New York at Buffalo (M.F.A. 1991-93).

Currently, Poskovic teaches at the University of Michigan, School of Art and Design where he is an Associate Professor.
