Street Child World Cup Portraits

My portrait of the street boy - Gurpreet, from Team India, was shortlisted for the Threadneedle Prize, June 2013.

 

In March 2010, young people from 8 different countries took part in the first Street Child World Cup, Durban, South Africa. The event was to raise awareness about children living on the streets and declare to the world the right of all children.

I painted a portrait of a member of each team - 

India, Tanzania, Brazil, Indonesia, Nicaragua, Ukraine, South Africa, England.
