Musical performances, poetry readings, acrobatic performance and exhibition of paintings were all a part of the culture week at Center Kongelunden June 18th
The interest to Center Kongelunden’s culture week was big. Every day there were different performances and the exhibition of David Jason Lou’s paintings was open during all week. New Times interviewed the Chinese asylum seeker artist.
“My father was an artist” David Jason explains. “I liked to paint from my childhood and tried to improve my skills in painting, but I never had time for it in my home country. I graduated from the university, where I studied economics and have been busy for many years after it. In Denmark I met the famous painter Maria Dubin, who worked as a volunteer in our centre. She covered the white walls of our centre with her beautiful paintings and I was inspired again. I became good friends with Maria. I felt the art became a part of my life, I couldn’t live without it. I painted over 20 paintings in two months. My friends liked them and encouraged me to make an exhibition. We invited some musicians and poets to join the culture week.”
