Cluj-Napoca Romania

Painting in main lecture hall at Babes -Bolyai University, Cluj

Detail of Painting

Just returned from a week in Romania in the city of Cluj-Napoca for 'Planta Europa' European Plant Conservation Conference. Bit of an old hand (this one making 4 out of 5) reporting on progress on the European Plant Conservation Strategy and formulating a new one incorporating considerations of climate change
The sessions were held at Babes- Boyai University in the Biology faculty. The main lecture room was surrounded by a series of murals which initially looked liked mosaics but on closer inspection turned out to be paintings made up of facets of colour, almost pointillist in style. They were both calming and intriguing, something inspiring to rest the eyes on when proceedings became intense.
