With piercing irony, Dan Perjovschi comments on the absurdities and cynicism of the “brave new world” in his everyday drawings, thrown with a few strokes. Current topics from the world news are sharpened as well as general social phenomena or things that affect the artist personally. With his figures and scenarios, Perjovschi expansively populates the walls, floors, corridors or windows of the art institutions.
