Dan Perjovschi

Dan Perjovschi, born in 1961 in Sibiu, Romania, is one of the most renown Romanian artists, with an established international reputation.

Dan Perjovschi’s work consists primarily of site-specific drawings on existing surfaces: walls, floors, windows, posters, etc. His creations are simple (humble) while at the same time very direct, revealing a clear socio-political engagement. Wherever he works, he takes the time to steep himself into the local environment, reading all of the available news and events.

The clever messages he leaves behind are the direct echo of the political, social and artistic environment in which he has been invited. As he states himself: “I don’t try to use my drawings in a cynical way. What I try to do is realize my idea to create a space for dialogue and comprehension.”
