hong kong kids win medals at international fine arts exhibition

The International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice (ICEFA Lidice) was established in 1967 to commemorate the child victims lost in the Czech village of Lidice in World War II, as well as those children lost in other wars around the world. In 1973, the exhibition was expanded to include entrants from children abroad.

This year, UNESCO chose  “Biodiversity – variety of living nature” as the main theme for the 38th ICEFA Lidice (第38屆捷克利迪策國際繪畫). The exhibition received over 25,000 works from 61 countries. Approximately 600 overseas entrants received prizes, 65 of which were medals.

The below works are Hong Kong’s two medal winners in the 38th ICEFA Lidice 2010. Chan Dun Yan Giovanni (陳敦彥) and Lau Kin Gi (劉見之) are both four years of age. Art definitely knows no boundaries.

Australia did not appear to have any entrants.
