Eugen Taru

Eugen was a Romanian graphic artist, best known for his work in the disciplines: political cartoon, caricature, comic strip and book illustrations. Active throughout the communist period and first acknowledged as one among the young socialist realists promoted by the regime, Taru primarily associated with satirical magazines such as Urzica. Recognized early on for his controversial involvement with the propaganda apparatus, he later focused on his work for children, and became one of the noted visual artists employed by the Editura Ion Creangă publishing house.  His own works are featured in several Romanian museums.
