Valery Oisteanu

Oisteanu has exhibited his art in New York and abroad and since 1973 has produced more than 40 original collage books. His creations can be found in many international permanent collections, and he was featured in John and Joan Digby’s “The Collage Handbook,” published by Thames & Hudson in 1985, where the authors noted: “...he uses both Dadaist and surrealist techniques, such as decollage, fummage and his own version of frontage, which he calls “rubbage"…” Oisteanu is an internationally recognized authority on Dadaism and surrealism. He has published over 100 essays on the avant-garde (e.g., in Brooklyn Rail, artnet.com, NYARTS) and lectures on surrealism at various universities and forums in the United States and Europe (e.g., the University of Connecticut at Hartford; the Global Surrealism Symposium, Bucharest; the Dali Centenary, Figueres, Spain).
