This spring, RCI’s Brâncuşi Gallery is set to host the first UK showcase of painter Bogdan Mihai Radu, winner of the 1st Prize at last year’s Oxford International Art Fair. The exhibition, a striking display that reunites the floral repertory already familiar to the painter's audiences and his lesser-known abstract expressionist works, comprises 20 acrylic paintings from the enthralling ‘Searching for Life’ series. Prefaced by HE Dan Mihalache, the Ambassador of Romania to the Court of St James’s, the event is organised in partnership with Hospices of Hope and the Embassy of Romania in the UK, in the presence of the artist. “A Romanian artist whose works spoke volumes at the entrance to the show. On an immense scale that’s immersive, Bogdan’s abstracted expressionism is bold and striking, dense with mood and emotion”. (Richard Knight, Christie's, Oxford 2018) When: Opening and drinks reception 20 March 2019, 7-9pm. The exhibition continues until 31 March 2019, Monday to Friday between 10am – 5pm. Where: Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, SW1X 8PH Free entry. Please confirm your attendance on EVENTBRITE.
