Biography
Ladislav Postupa is a Czech artist born in 1929, he died in 2016. He was an important avant garde photographer after the war. He was a heir of the tradition of surrealist photography, and followed the same line as artists like Emila Medkova, Wiskovsky, Funke and Vilem Reichmann. A designer by profession, his pieces are often the result of a research that is at the boundary between photography and design. He is interested in found objects, he transform them in visual messages through his imagination. The composition and the tones of his work are clear and often contain items depicting a hint of sarcasm. His work has been exhibited in more than thirty private exhibitions and more than twenty group exhibitions in Czech Republic and abroad. The old socialist system of the country has not given a lot of opportunities for the artist to present his work in the international scene but he has been part of several important collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum of London, the European House of Photography in Paris and the Chicago Art Institute in Chicago.
