From the artist:
 
"I do one notebook for every show or project. It is like a pocket studio and research space. In the notebook, drawings are pushed further to the limit and are not very PC. There are a lot of bad drawings, things that do not work out, lame jokes. Humour is hard to capture... Of the two hundred drawings in a notebook, thirty or fifty will make it onto the wall and maybe ten will make it into the general repertoire. The repertoire began in 2000 and since then drawings have been incorporated and discarded, rolling from one wall to the next.
 
I am the happiest when I draw in the notebook and I know the drawing is good. Translating it onto the wall is also good, but it is just a translation.
 
I draw, I happy."
 
Black & White Cape Town Report, Perjovschi's exhibition in A4's gallery, took place in 2019 following a two-week residency spent engaging the local context through spontaneous encounters, conversations, commutes, and by reading the daily papers.

Dan Perjovschi (b. 1961) is an artist, writer and activist born in Sibiu, Romania. His artistic practice combines illustration, political satire, comedy, performance. “Perjovschi does not ignore the inherent contradictions of the socioeconomically privileged arena where his work can be found,” Ocula magazine wrote of the artist. “To violence, opulence and extremism, he responds with puns, laughter and ridicule as the protection of freedom.”
