This seminar is part of a new series organised by the Art, Biodiversity and Climate network. This lecture follows the journey of a plant hunter and illustrator who has painted his way around the globe, depicting the world’s weirdest and wildest rare plants, from the driest deserts of the Middle East to the misty mountains of tropical Borneo. The plant kingdom is replete with intriguing forms and structures which have long inspired botanical illustrators. In fact although we live in a digital era, illustration has always been important in preserving knowledge about plants, and is still important today. Chris will recount the challenges of his adventures, and how he has sought to conjure up these botanical curiosities on canvas.
