Zili Yang (aged 12) | Winner 12 - 15

A Girl in Silence

Paint on canvas

Zili says: "My name is Zili. I am extroverted and I laugh a lot in my daily life. I am good at painting, dancing and piano. I enjoy using my paint brush to record and outline the beautiful and lovely things around me. Different forms of art are necessary parts of my life. 

One day when I sat in the back garden and enjoyed freeing my imagination, my mum took a photo of me in that moment. She thought this showed another side of me. I felt that it would be interesting and meaningful to paint this and show the people around me a different me."
