Young Artists’ Creations – Holiday Collections

Samikha Karthik

Samikha (born in 13 Sept 2011) started her art journey since she was 4 years old. In school, she was given the top student award when she was 8 years old. She sees art making as a creative act of the mind that flows pure and free, a beautiful space in which freedom tests its wings. This drawing of a lovely deer was exhibited in the National Library in 2020 and was well-received by the public. Her ambition is to be an artist and doctor.

I love art because art is freedom. I can turn a brown or white bunny into an amazing rainbow bunny with clothes.

Rishabh Ganesh Hebbar

Rishabh Ganesh Hebbar ( born in 6 March 2011) started drawing since he was three. He used to draw heavy vehicles and machines when he was younger. These days, he is expanding his artistic repertoire and has started landscape painting, comic drawings, sketching of animals and movie characters. He enjoys sharing his works and has participated in exhibitions at the National Library. His dream is to become an artist who will leave behind a legacy.

Art is exciting, at the same time soothing. It helps me to be creative and allows me to be who I am. Without art, earth would be colourless.

Painting is a colourful and fun adventure which never fails to fascinate me.

Crystal & Claris Hwang

Crystal Hwang (born in 18.3.2006) started doodling since she was a toddler. Art making was spontaneous just like other kids. She started drawing the food she ate, the people in her life and her favourite animals. As she grows up, art becomes a form of relaxation. Now she enjoys drawing comics of composers and creating interesting visual stories about them. She has participated in many charity art events such as decoration of an orphanage, fund raising for the tsunami victims in Japan and the needy in Singapore. One of her paintings was also auctioned off in a charity event and she has shared her works in public spaces such as the Art House and National Library.

Art is free and there is no boundary. We can create anything and I like creating art to amuse.

My role as an artist is to offer a sanctuary of beauty to our world.

Jeffrey Coletti (born in 7.8.2003) picked up art when he was six. His first encounter with art was during his therapy session with teacher Lynn. Ever since then, he fell in love with art and has learnt to combat anxiety. Today, he is a confident teenager who enjoys finding his flow with the different mediums.

I love art because it never judge and will never leave. I can be myself when I paint.
