Art Contest: Injustice
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of our annual art contest, which asked teens to create a piece of art about an injustice.
First place $100. Amy Fan, 18, Temple City HS. Teacher: Minee Kim.
“I painted this to share my feelings about censorship in China. It is ridiculous that people do not have free speech and are surrounded by lies and cover-ups from the government. The family is my own family, except that I changed the ages so we’re all younger. The crying girl is me, I’m about 11. This is a representation of what my life would have been like if my parents didn’t move to the States. The black tape represents China’s lack of free speech, and the Chinese flag is painted over us. We’re also painted on Chinese newspaper, which represents corruption of the media.”
