Ceausescu si Leana in iad
Bucharest-based artist Bogdan Petry published his first caricatures in 1990. He studied Fine Arts and subsequently worked in animation for many years. He spent a year in the USA and started to contribute drawings and caricatures to Romanian publications like Academia Caţavencu upon his return. Between 2002 and 2007 he drew four small-format comic books in which he gave his satirical view on the Romanian politicians and jet-set. These books, published with 30,000 copies each, are the highest circulating comics in Romania after the fall of communism in 1989. Petry also made monthly comics spread for the magazine Maxim in 2006 and 2007.
