The amazon becomes a source of inspiration!
24 children under 16 have had artwork inspired by the rainforest displayed in the Rainforest Biome, in the Eden Project, Devon.
A spectacular new exhibition of work by two top artists has inspired more than 1,000 young people from around the world to create their own rainforest-themed works.
John Dyer, the Eden Project’s painter in residence, and Nixiwaka Yawanawá, an Amazonian Indian artist, created an exhibition based on the sacred spiritual culture of the Yawanawá tribe of Brazil. These paintings were displayed in the Rainforest Biome during May this year and have in turn inspired more than 1,000 young artists from around the world to create their own rainforest-themed works.
The children’s artworks were unveiled at Eden on Saturday (October 17), alongside John and Nixiwaka’s works. In addition to this, all of the entries are available to view online through www.edenproject.com or www.johndyergallery.co.uk.
