Dan Perjovschi is an artist, writer and cartoonist born on 29 October 1961 in Sibiu, Romania.
Perjovschi has over the past decade created drawings in museum spaces, most recently in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in which he created the drawing during business hours for patrons to see. The drawings present a political commentary in response to current events. Another exhibition of Perjovschi's within a Portuguese bank consists of several comic strip style drawings which address more European issues such as Romania's acceptance to the EU and abortion legalization in Portugal.
Dan and Lia Perjovschi had their first retrospective exhibition at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in fall 2007.
In 2009 Dan Perjovschi created his first permanent realisation in Czech National Library of Technology in Prague. It consists of 200 monumental drawings on the concrete walls of main atrium of the building.
In 2010, Dan Perjovschi served as an International Artist in Residence at the University of Kansas Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, Kansas. He created an installation in the Museum's Central Court and engaged with students from various departments at KU.
In March 2013 Dan and Lia Perjovschi were awarded with the European Cultural Foundation's Princess Margriet Award.
