Tara von Neudorf

b. 1974 in Ludus, Transylvania, Romania


Tara von Neudorf (b. 1974, Transylvania, Romania) works at the intersection of visual manifestos and satirical drawings, addressing political, social, sometimes moral questions about the current state of things and the recent history. His often-provocative works tackle issues extracted from his personal biography, as well as public news and disruptive events filtered by the artist with an ironic eye.
