In India, the bindi is traditionally a symbolic mark of pigment applied to the forehead. Today it has become a fashionable and decorative accessory available in many colours and designs, and is used by Indian artist Bharti Kher in some of her art works. Children can wear one of the artist’s specially designed bindis and everyone will know they’ve been to ’21st Century Kids’.
John Pule is an artist, writer and poet whose art works often combine words and images. For ’21st Century Kids’ Pule presents a large-scale collaborative drawing project titled Drawing words.
