The vibrant cultural tapestry of London is about to welcome ‘The Cluj Collective’ at JD Malat Gallery, an exhibition featuring the works of a group of talented Romanian artists from April 10th to April 27th, 2024. 

‘The Cluj Collective’ brings together seven Romanian artists, all alumni of the esteemed University of Arts and Design Cluj-Napoca in north-western Romania, a pioneer in visual arts in the region. United by their shared educational background and passion for figurative painting, these artists bring with them a wide range of influences, experiences, and perspectives. Each artwork invites viewers on a journey through the complexities of the human experience; exploring the themes of identity, nature, freedom, power, spirituality and reality, inspired by the distinct culture of Cluj-Napoca. 

Shaped by the experience of living in Post-Communist Romania following the Romanian Revolution of 1989, the artists make subtle yet powerful links between history and the present. The participating artists include: Dragoș Bădiță (b.1987), Oana Fărcaș (b.1981), Botond Gagyi (b.1992), Cristian Lapusan (b.1976), Dan Maciuca (b.1979), Marcel Rusu (b. 1989) and Cătălin Tăvală (b. 1996).
