Teodor Graur (b. 1953, Pogaceaua, Mures, Romania) lives and works in Bucharest, Romania. His work includes performance, photography, sculpture, painting and installation. For the last years, the artist has focused on a series of objects comprising a “museum” that is equally nostalgic and ironic. The artist’s sometimes nostalgic, sometimes critical relation with the gathered and recycled objects is visible in his ensemble pieces, from “ecological monuments,” to “funerary monuments,” or to "interior monuments." Graur co-founded the Euroartist Bucharest group (active 1994-1996). His recent exhibitions include SAMPLE of European Contemporary Art by Teodor Graur, Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles (2018, solo); Notes on a Landscape, Central Exhibition at Art Safari Bucharest (2017); Nature-Culture.
