Child Syrian Artist – level 3

21-06-2021 07:00

Syrian Rayan al-Abed held a solo exhibition for his art; he may be Syria’s youngest artist at five years old. He has been painting for three years since he was two.

His grandfather taught him the hobby. His grandfather said his grandson gets some of the techniques of painting correct, but he cannot replicate everything yet as he is still learning.

His grandfather added that Rayan differentiates colors such as using two colors for a face to show a light and a dark side. This means Rayan understands shadows and lights in painting but in his own way.

Difficult words: solo exhibition (when an artist shows his art to people without other artists), replicate (to copy perfectly), differentiate (to tell what is different).
