Traian Cherecheș (b. 1989, Bucharest, Romania) is a visual artist living and working between Bucharest and Paris. By examining the limits between natural exploration and extraction, his investigation into the current age of extinction surfaces out powerful, symbolic approaches to the body, volcano, and ritual. His work emerges from an interdisciplinary process using drawing, painting, sculpture, and sound to translate concerns about the multiple transformations in today’s world.
In 2019 he participated in the 64th edition of Salon de Montrouge, Paris. His tracks and experimental soundscapes have been released by labels such as Archipel, Fabric Records London, and Cocoon Recordings. Together with Matei Tulbure they form the music project “TC Studio”. Recent exhibitions include “Out of the Blue” at MARe (Museum of Recent Art), Bucharest, and (UN)Earthings at Atelier 35 together with Bogdan Ghiu, Florin Flueras, curated by Horațiu Lipot.
