Dan Perjovschi (b. 1961, Sibiu) is an artist and activist whose cartoon-like sketches cover walls, windows, notebooks and numerous other surfaces worldwide, including some of the most important museum institutions. His works focus on commenting on the current social, political or cultural crises and events. With his quick sketches, he portrays our reality with a sense of criticality and pointed humour.

For the project, Perjovschi sends a photo from his studio in Bucharest. There, he is working on his recognisable sketches with which he is responding to the pandemic with his usual humorous look at human behaviour, and in this case, its fragility.

Artists Respond project was started by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection. Addressing the current global pandemic, the project aims to virtually present the thoughts and attitudes of neo-avant-garde artists, their energy and the message they have for the present moment. This is the moment in which the world as we know it is on hold and the moment in which we need optimism and solidarity more than ever. We wish for the public to welcome the creative energy of these artists - artists who are ready to point out the state of things, to respond with art and creativity, as they have done in all difficult times in the past.

Dan Perjovschi was a participant of our Artist on Vacation project in 2013, organised by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection, with Valamar Riviera d.d. in whose facilities they reside in Poreč.
