What is PosterLad?

PosterLad is an art project by Czech designer and artist Vratislav Pecka. He believes that a poster does not always have to promote an event or product. Instead, Pecka uses the poster medium as a space for expressing his artistic ideas. The main common features of Vratislav Pecka's work are basic shapes and vivid colors. His work was influenced by the Bauhaus school and a certain nostalgia for and memories of the 90s. Most of the time, Posterlad's art does not aim to express specific thoughts or deliver a message. The primary goal of the artworks is to visually captivate and please the observer's eye.

The PosterLad project started in 2016. Pecka's style is constantly evolving, and the artist does not stick with one style for too long. Within a few years, PosterLad became popular on social media and was awarded a couple of major international design awards. Pecka is currently a full-time artist and is open to collaborations with clients seeking designs with his personal artistic touch. PosterLad has been recognized in the digital art scene as well. His artworks are presented on the world's most prestigious NFT platform called SuperRare, which hosts only a handful of leading contemporary artists. Pecka has had solo and collective exhibitions on most continents around the world, in places such as Shanghai, Paris, London, or New York. He is represented by Pinzle in the South Korean market.

"Vratislav managed to get international exposure for his excellent work. I appreciate the fact that the work is purely formal and does not pretend to advertise or promote anything, there is no function that manages to drag the work into the gutter."
– Stefan Sagmeister (Forbes, 12/2022)
