Wales Romania

David Greenslade first met George Ostafi in 2016, at Bukovina Museum, in the Romanian city of Suceava. On returning to Wales, when John Welson saw photographs of George’s paintings, he immediately proposed a Wales-Romania collaboration. John started working on several paintings and David transported them from Wales for George to complete in Romania. George also started paintings, which were then taken to Wales.
 
This went on until George’s untimely death in January 2019, just as the project was coming to fruition. As a result, George never got to see the astonishing exhibition of his ‘hybrid paintings’ with John that took place in Romania in May 2019, which is now on display in the Senedd, the home of Welsh democracy.
