Ion Barladeanu

The sixty-year-old wanderer, Ion Barladeanu, lives in the Romanian capital Bucharest, where he survives by cleaning up garbage. When a gallery owner finds that Barladeanu has a collection of fascinating social critique collages that he made when the dictator Ceausescu  was in charge, Ion B. becomes a celebrity‘, (Close Up, 2017)

Ion balances between genius and madness. Between being an artist and a drunk. His social commentary collages are fascinating, sharp, humorous & cynical.
