Ion Grigorescu

Ion Grigorescu (Romania, born 1945) has addressed topics ranging from political commentary and reflections on history to his own body, spirituality and religion. Grigorescu has experimented with genres, formats and techniques, producing comic strips or performances or murals. Lately he has gained new recognition for his films from the 1970s, shot on Super8, for his texts and for his photographic projects realized during the final decades of Nicolae Ceausescu’s rule. Ion Grigorescu’s work may appear informal or baroque, but he is a particularly well-reflected artist who exercises the utmost economy of expression.
