Free style

Dan Perjovschi

04.18.2009 - 05.23.2009

For about 10 years Dan Perjovschi has been jumping from one wall to another (some time falling on the floor or floating from the ceiling) story-telling the world around us. As he says, if he draws it, he understands it.  The style is anarchic with no apparent structure. A sort of visual jazz. From international world-affecting decision to the taste of the morning coffee, the distance is measured in centimeters. Drawing after drawing, Dan Perjovschi is knitting the big narrative of the contemporary world. With humor, irony and empathy, needing no one and obeying no rules. Free style.

Free Style is Dan Perjovschi’s second solo show at galerie Michel Rein, for which he will draw ont the walls of the gallery. He will deal with diverse subjects, such as the economic crisis, the President of the Republic, the art market, Obamania or capitalism shaking, etc. Dan Perjovschi is a visual artist who mixes drawing, cartoon and graffiti. He develops his practice onto the walls of museums and galleries all over the world. His drawings comment on current political, social or cultural issues. Dan Perjovschi has played an active role in the development of civil society in Romania , through his editorial activity with Revista 22 cultural magazine in Bucharest. Dan Perjovschi has been featured in many exhibitions in prestigious museums (the Pompidou & MOMA in 2007, Tate Modern in 2006, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2005) and internationals events (Moscow Biennal & Venice Biennal in 2007, Manifesta in 1998). Dan Perjovschi represented Romania at the 1999
Venice Biennale.
