Endi Poskovic's prints reflect on the strategies of classic ukiyo-e prints, early cinema, devotional pictures, and Eastern European propaganda posters by merging visual representation with text, often shifting the reading of the imagery through continuous representation and re-contextualization. Poskovic's amalgam of diverse imagery and visual narratives 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 is a gradate of The Sarajevo School of Music (Primary Music Diploma 1982-86), The Sarajevo School of Applied Arts (Diploma in Fine Arts 1983-86) and The University of Sarajevo-Academy of Fine Arts (B.F.A. 1986-90). After a year of study in Norway (1990-91) on a grant from the Norwegian Government, Poskovic moved to the United States to continue his education. He holds his graduate degree in printmedia from State University of New York at Buffalo (M.F.A. 1991-93) where he studied with Harvey Breverman and Adele Henderson.

Poskovic has represented the United States in major international print biennales and triennials in Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cuba, Ecuador, Estonia, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Korea, Macedonia, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, and most recently at the Krakow International Print Triennial, la Biennale internationale d'estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières, Egyptian International Print Triennial, Deutsche Internationale Grafik Triennale Frechen, Tallinn International Triennial, Xylon International, and Ljubljana International Biennale.
