Artists aim to help children affected by war in Kachin State

Young artists from minority ethnic backgrounds are planning to hold a collective exhibition here in April to raise funds for children affected by war in Kachin State, one of the show’s organisers said Thursday.
The funds will be used to buy food, toys and necessities, said the organiser, a graphic artist who goes by the name ZZDD.
ZZDD, 32, said he wants to help children, who he sees playing a vital role in building a modern, developed country.
“We plan to exhibit at least 15 to 20 paintings in a variety of media to display on sale during the exhibition, with the artists preparing their works for it,” he said, adding visitors would see summer-related thoughts represented in the paintings.
“I usually take part in the fund raising activities with my graphic arts,” said ZZDD, who is currently displaying works at an exhibition at River Ayeyawady Gallery with other artists.
ZZDD, an ethnic Kachin, has been a graphic artist since 2007. He encouraged aspiring graphic artists to improve their English language skills to get the most from art courses.
Kachin State is the northernmost state of Myanmar. According to the 2014 census, more than 1 million ethnic people live there.—GNLM
