Robert Fekete

Robert Fekete is one of the youngest artists coming from Cluj-­Napoca, former capital of Transilvania, today a veritable melting pot of cultures and history in the Region. The artist refined his education either in Cluj-­Napoca, Turin and Rome, where from 2010 to 2012 he did a residency at the Romanian Academy. Robert Fekete belongs to the third generation of artists from Cluj-­Napoca, who established themselves in Europe as in the United States. He is one of the youngest exponents of the so called ‘school of Cluj’, a group of Romanian artists schooled at the University of Art and Design in the city, which includes names like Adrian Ghenie, Serban Savu, and Victor Man. Robert Fekete’s work have been exhibited in international galleries, such as M77 Gallery in Milan, Dominique Flat Gallery in Paris, HVVCA – Hudson Valley for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, New York, Conduits Gallery in Milan. The Artist took part to collective shows at the Romanian Academy in Rome, the V Biennal of Prague, at Prisma Gallery, Bolzano, Mihai Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles, Mie Lefever Gallery, Destelbergen, Belgium.
His works have been acquired by public and private collections, like Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill NY and the Art Center Hugo Voeten, Herentals, Belgium. Born in Satu Mare (Romania) in 1987, the artist lives and works in Cluj-­Napoca.
