Octavia Florescu and his golfing bears

We took in a painting at About Canada, Banff that really tickles me.

Octavian Florescu, an artist with an international reputation as a surrealist painter, decided to produce some pieces just for us in Banff.

The fun piece is Golf Bears. From now on how can you ever hear of golfers seeing a bear on the golf course without coming up with this image.Golf Bears, Octavian Florescu

He has also produced a line called Banff Eagles which you can see online.

In the Banff Eagle Octavian mixes his surrealist geometrics with a natural scene including Mount Rundle in the background.

In the Banff Eagle Series 2 Octavian produces a more sraightforward depiction of an eagle flying through the Bow Valley with Mount Rundle in the background.

The Octavian Banff Eagle Series 5 sees Octavian again depicting eagles in a surrealist style as the eagle swoops down in the Bow Valley. In the valley bottom is a teepee (in Octavians geometrically impossible style) upon a native drum base.
