IS IT A NEVER BEFORE SHOWN MIRÓ ‘S PIECE? NO, IT WAS CREATED BY NOEMI, 3 YEARS OLD…

 NOEMI PAINTING

I have recently participated to the valuation commission to choose the winners for an educational contest about fairy tales. The activity was promoted through italian magazine Okay! by DreamWorks Italy and it was inspired by “Puss in Boots” movie. I saw a lot of beautiful drawings and paintings by which kids (infancy, primary and secondary schools) told and expressed –  in absolutely freedom of expression –  their ideas, feelings and emotions about the world of fairy tales.

Noemi’s work – so spontaneous and so similar to the structure of some Mirò ‘s artworks – really stroke all the commission members. And I think it deserves some attention. Noemi (she attends Infancy School in Madone, Bergamo, in Milan Area, Italy) did the painting last year, when she was 3 years old. Her painting – canvas, 29,5×24, acrylic – is the proof that the great contemporary artists have always been inspired by their infantile imaginary. And sometimes we need to say it…
