Vlado Martek (Zagreb, 1951) is a poet, visual artist and writer. Martek named himself a pre-poet, and his work pre-poetry, that became the definition of his artistic practice. His creativity includes actions i.e. exhibition-actions in collaboration and communication with the audience, occurring on the streets and in public spaces. By the relaxed and constant shifts and alternations, his art practice points towards Fluxus, the influence which he further develops introducing references on the historical avant-gardes, Duchamp and concrete poetry. He lives in Zagreb, Croatia.
