Valentin Zadorozhny started producing posters while still a student at the Kiev Art Institute. He found success almost immediately, winning several Ukrainian poster competitions. This prompted the artist and critic V. Kasian to observe that ``posters are Zadorozhny's natural second language.`` The artist continued to produce posters in the later stages of his career, but gradually, his interests shifted towards monumental art.
