Farhad Nouri is known as “Little Picasso” among asylum seekers.
Assoted Press reported in the report that the ten-year-old Afghan boy, who has been trapped with his parents and two younger brothers in a camp in Serbia, has for two reasons nicknamed “small picasso”: he knows how to figure out and Picasso Likes.
Farhad, with his eyes glinting, spoke about Pablo Picasso, the famous painter of the twentieth century, saying: “I’ll make it one day too.”
For the time being, Farhad’s office has included figures such as Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, Angelina Jolie, actress, Salvador Dali, Spanish painter, and Novak Djokovic, the number two tennis player of the world.
Farhad’s talent has brought him the fame of a local star. She recently met American actress Mandy Petkinin.
Mr Petkinin is working with the International Committee of the Red Cross to help asylum seekers, and Donald Trump urged the US president to embrace the refugees from the war-torn countries.
“Merkel may be able to open the border,” Farhad said in a statement he learned in the last year after leaving Afghanistan.
Farhad also likes to portray the images of family members and friends, the magical palaces of children’s stories, nature, and anything that comes to mind.
He says painting has helped him during the war.
“I was in Turkey, I was in Greece. I would love to paint here in the camp. I want to paint my feelings.”
Farhad’s family is among the thousands of asylum seekers who have stumbled upon the border closure and among the rising feelings of 100 asylum seekers in Serbia and are looking for a way to reach Western Europe.
Last week, Hungary intensified its asylum laws, including all asylum seekers in its border areas in Cantonment.
Farhad says his family wants to go to Switzerland or to the United States.
Farhad remembers what is happening in Afghanistan, “I remembered when we left in our house, I remember that day, but I think good enough to remember something.”
Farhad’s temporary home in Serbia – where his family officially asylum requests – is a dark, wet room with dormitory beds, a shelf and a small table.
This camp, which was formerly a barracks, was also a refuge for Yugoslavia’s refugees during the 1990s.
Farhad says he plays with other campus children and also attends Serbian language classes.
He usually stays on the bed during the night that silence prevails.
“I teach myself, sometimes I see and learn video tutorials on YouTube,” he says.
Farhad says she hopes that her family will be able to live a new life in Switzerland.
Farhad says he will be a painter and photographer a day and will play the guitar.
