Hello, my name is Kareng Mai Zin Bu. I have been a refugee from childhood to adulthood. Since in the past, this Burmese military has used dictatorship against to our Kachin People and in addition, they fired heavy artillery shells at the mountains and villages where our people live. This is why there are many losses for our people such as the students couldn’t attend school and we have lost our friends lives as well. I feel immersed in my heart. This kind of bad incident are illustrated in this painting. Therefore, I hope people will look at this painting with full of loves. And my purpose is that I want to re-learn the painting and dedicate it from a corner when our country is built.
