World Peace Series 1 • Acrylic on canvas • 91.5 x 91.5 cm • 2020 • by artjamila
Interpretation: Peace can be defined in many ways. Peace, to a person, may be about finding a quiet place to read a book or solving a crime and punishing evil. World peace, however, is the same ideal many people have that can be defined as freedom and unity between countries throughout the globe. Jamila feels that in order to achieve world peace, it is crucial for everybody to find their own happiness first and achieve contentment with their own life, slowly accepting the differences of others and embracing happiness together. This painting represents Jamila’s ideal view of the world, a place where people of different kinds can dance together like the people in this painting, wearing happy smiles on their faces without a worry for the future in their step.
