Ion Grigorescu (born 1945)

Ion Grigorescu is one of the most charismatic and original artists of the former Eastern Bloc. Trained as a painter, he was one of the first Romanian conceptualists and “eulogists of anti-art” to postulate a radical integration of art activities and everyday life. He has made films, series of photographs, for-camera performances, drawings and collages, in which he documented both his private life, and the path Romanian society has taken between the Communist regime and the realities of expansive capitalism.
