Mad Cow, Bird Flu, Global Village: The Art of Dan Perjovschi
by Dan Perjovschi
Acute and wickedly funny cartoons by MoMA/Tate-exhibited artist.
Spontaneous, abrupt and wickedly humorous, Dan Perjovschi is fast becoming one of the world’s most influential cartoonists. He presents here a skeptical commentary on contemporary global conflicts and dilemmas, military and economic imperialism, and the complexities and contradictions of social and political life in a post-cold war world. Drawing on popular forms of newspaper cartoons and comics for his often unpalatable truths, his drawings are disorderly and disrespectful, puncturing the world of the mass media and their trivial, bizarre products. Perjovschi is a master of the punchline, his command of language unique, infused with puns and multiple meanings. The result is at once hilarious and subversive.
Hardback, 120 pages, October 2007.
