Learner and artist Keagan Larkin age 13, grade 7 from Kirstenhof Primary School was the winner taking home the grand prize of R4,000.00. The sponsoring Club was Tokai Lions Club.
This is what the judges wrote about Keagan Larkin’s peace poster:-
This poster combines the three elements, Peace Love and Understanding, without one element overpowering the other.
The incorporation of all the flags into the peace symbol, on international symbol, shows insight. The artist also included the globe with a combination of endangered animals showing environmental consciousness and that people and animals are equally important in the world.
Different cultures and nationalities are drawn from various parts of the world showing an understanding and respect for people’s differences to form unity through peace.
Each iconic building represents different ideas through symbolism i.e. the statue of liberty “Hope and Peace” between nations. The Eiffel Tower – means “love”.
The trees and hearts show love and growth amongst nations.
The doves beautifully encapsulate the entirety of the poster. The music notes almost creating a melody in your ears when you look at it.
The dove represents love and peace in the world and therefore understanding. The artist showed an understanding of the topic and combined elements which show great thought, knowledge and insight.
CONGRATULATIONS Keagan Larkin!
