Dear Beautylicious. Have you ever wonder how the real world is. Real world issues never ending thus affect most of child around the globe. Can you imagine how these children facing the reality everyday (i.e. child abuse, child labour, war, homeless) and live with it. We are blessed as our country (i.e. Malaysia) is safe from war and our government is still able to rule the country in peace. Despite of high cost of living, we are not enforcing our child for labour. Furthermore, a community and society in Malaysia are very active in providing shelter and place for the homeless and unfortunate child.
In conjunction with Ramadhan month i.e. ideal month to give, contribute and share with the unfortunate, Esse Organic Skincare (i.e. an eco-conscious skincare brand promoting a sustainable life) is organising an Art Exhibition. With “Nature” as the theme, the artwork is painted by children aged 16 and below. These paintings came from few countries i.e. Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Hong Kong and South Africa. With “Mother Nature” theme, you would notice that these paintings are more focusing on the beauty of nature and its surroundings. They are taught to be more aware with what we are facing now (i.e. pollution, trees cutting without control, green house, etc) and develop love towards our irreplaceable mother earth. I went thru all the artwork and was amazed with it. They are young and talented. Young Picasso.
These are some of the artworks that amazed me:-
|Birds of a Feather, Hannah Steyn, 15, South Africa|
|Happy Frog, Aaron Lam, 5, Hong Kong|
|In the World Trees Become Pencil, Alice Lim Sze Yuan, 8|
|Spring Blossom, Kyra Pope, 15, South Africa|
|Our feathered friends, Pia Steyn, 12, South Africa|
|The 12 Days of Winter in My Country, Cynthia, 10, Myanmar|
|The Only Home, Ellyna Choi Jia Yern, 9|
|Tree of Dream, Charmaine Ng, 14, Malaysia|
|Whimsical Tree, Charmaine Ng, 14, Malaysia|
Every artworks sold in this event will be donated to SHELTER – Home For Children in Malaysia.
