Kids’ art depicts dreams of a post-COVID-19 future

THE 6th International Children’s Creative Art Exhibition is currently being held at Shanghai Art Collection Museum through August 22.

Themed “Creating A Better Tomorrow,” the exhibition attracted works by children from 22 countries including China, Japan, South Korea, the United States and the United Kingdom. Their art varies from painting, calligraphy, sculpture, embroidery to installation.

According to the organizer, the exhibition aims to let children express their dreams for the future and share with the local public.

Mobasshir, a 12-year-old from Bangladesh, reflects in his painting his hope of going on a picnic with his family.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the life of many children around the world has been changed. Some just want to play football with classmates, some would like to spend a holiday on grasslands, and others want to study, shop and travel the world freely. All these dreams are vividly captured in their artwork.

Here, all cultural barriers are gone, and the hope for a “better tomorrow” is the earnest call of all the participating children.

The organizing committee is also giving gold, silver, bronze and excellence awards for works displayed at the exhibition.
