Portraits of Life

 
 
 

"There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children . There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace."
Kofi Annan                 

I AM

The first three paintings from the 'I AM' series. This series consists of twelve children's portraits. Each painting is based on a contemporary photo, placing children from different countries in a colourful world that contrasts sharply with reality. Each portrait symbolizes one of the rights of the child.

 

The first three portraits are about three young girls. All three are set against a colourful flowery background. At first glance, they look like brightly coloured paintings, where each girl looks at you with an uninhibited and innocent look.

The following  portraits are about young boys, set against a colourful background based on African fabrics. I’ve chosen these patterns because they symbolize their need as well as their threat
