Serban Savu

Serban Savu (b. 1978, Sighisoara, Romania; lives in Cluj, Romania). Savu paints the image of a world after the failure of a historical project, along with his vision of “the New Man” – the long-awaited product of the communist society, created in the ideological lab – caught in the melancholy of his daily condition of anonymity in the transition to capitalism. In Savu's works the distance between an ideal perspective and that of reality loads each painting with an awkward, unavoidable tension.
