Dan Perjovschi lives and works in Bucharest.

He had solo projects at MACRO Roma, ROM Toronto, MoMA New York, Basel Kunsthalle, Tate Modern, Portikus Frankfurt and Ludwig Museum Cologne.

Perjovschi received George Maciunas Prize in 2004 and ECF-Princss Margriet Prize in 2012.

With probably the simplest and most economical of current art practices, Dan Perjovschi’s work manages to comment on the widest possible terrain of political, economic and artistic subjects. His work is humorous, sharp and sometimes cutting in its exposure of human behaviour and fragility. In simple terms, he draws pictures and texts on walls. (Charles Esche)
