News from Nowhere: Romanian Illustrators Today
Starting with the exhibition News From Nowhere, on view through January 8th, 2017, POINT Art Hub will set itself as a forum for contemporary illustration and graphic art. The group show is the first hosted by the Bucharest hub dedicated exclusively to illustration, gathering more than 30 Romanian illustrators, both established artists and emerging talents.
“As a genre, illustration has been born out of many things, grown broader in its context through new media and technology, and this has signified that illustration now shares a valid platform with fine art. Today’s illustrators go beyond caricature and visual representation to observational statements about current trends and popular culture,” explain the organizers.
Artists featured in the show include Aitch, Mădălina Andronic, Carine Arnakis, Cristina Barsony, Alina Bohoru, Matei Branea, Tiberius Ciucinciu, CoonOne, Iulia Ignat, Irina Maria Iliescu, Kape Illustration, Loreta Isac, Kitra, Alina Marinescu, Andrei Măceşanu, Timotei Nicolae, Alex Nimurad, Tuan Nini, Mircea Pop, Alina Popa, Mircea Popescu, Cristian Prandea, Sebastian Pren, Giorge Roman, Saddo, Alexandru Cristian Săvescu, Andra Semciuc, Andy Sinboy, Ileana Surducan, Maria Surducan, Ioana Şopov, and Sorina Vazelina.
It’s an exciting start and, hopefully, more names will be showcased in the near future.
