Ion Grigorescu (born March 15, 1945 in Bucharest) is a Romanian painter, was one of the first Romanian conceptual artists and advocates of anti-art, postulating a radical consolidation of artistic activities with quotidian life. He is the creator of numerous films, photographic series, and actions recorded on film, as well as drawings and collages that documented both his private life and the passage of the Romanian people from life under communist regimes to the realities of expansive capitalism.
Ion Grigorescu is arguably the most important Romanian artist of the communist period.
He is represented by Andreiana Mihail Gallery, Bucharest and Gregor Podnar Gallery Berlin-Ljubljana.
