Born in 1961 in Sibiu, Romania. Lives and works in Bucharest, Romania.

Although Dan Perjovschi trained to be a painter (at the George Enescu University of the Arts in Iasi, Romania), his work has since the early 1990s developed into a prolific drawing practice, focusing in particular on satirical drawing. By reducing his medium to its most elementary expression – the clear line – Perjovschi endows his sketches with maximum legibility, which as a result brings his drawings closer to the act of writing. The notions of drawing and writing are, indeed, inseparable in the artist’s work. But if clarity, spontaneity, and immediacy are so typical of his sketches, his finished drawings represent the most direct materialization of a thought. Seeking more than to communicate something about the world rather than simply to aestheticize it, Perjovschi’s thoughts develop in response to current events that affect the artist’s immediate environment, such as the reconstruction of cultural identity in post-communist Romania, although inspiration can also come from topics in the international media. Ultimately, Perjovschi’s art presents us with a gaze that is both ironic and acerbic. Unsparing toward the popular clichés circulating in the news media, he raises questions about politics, religion, the role of the individual in the collective, and the relationship of the global and the local. Nor does he neglect the inherent contradictions in the socio-economic domain where his work is viewed, i.e. the art world. To expressions of violence and extremism, Perjovschi opposes laughter and mockery as the safeguards of free thought and the free expression of thought.
