Ever wondered what the future will be like in 50 years time? 7 year-old Archer, a finalist from Chapter’s Postcards From The Future competition, explains the vision behind his artwork.
What was your inspiration for the artwork?
My picture shows square rainbows and windmills on the houses so they can save the electricity and they can save the planet by giving electricity to other houses and castles.
I put bees and birds to show how healthy the planet is in this area.
I put my cousins, a tractor, a modern castle, and a regular castle. I put hollowed out mushrooms that people live in and I put bins.
How do you feel about being included in a professional art exhibition in Chapter?
I’m really happy that I got in. I like everyone else’s the same as mine! Also, I’m really excited if I win or not.
What other creative things do you do?
I love painting animals that are in the wild. I love painting dinosaurs. I love drawing. I love building and I love everything that I do. And, we’re going to the zoo soon!
Is there anything else that you’d like to say about being a finalist?
I’m really happy that I’m in the top three and I love everyone else’s. I just don’t know what to say but this is one thing – I’m really happy, really, REALLY happy.
