Anjali Chandrashekar, a 22-year-old Indian artist is among the three winners of a UN poster competition on creating awareness about nuclear disarmament. She was appreciated by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for the poster depicts a peace dove slicing through a nuclear weapon. Presently, she is living in New York.
She has won the 3rd prize in UN Poster for Peace contest presented by the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (ODA) to raise awareness of the need for nuclear disarmament. The 1st prize went to Ivan Ciro Palomino Huamani from Peru for his ‘Spinning Peace’, which features a nuclear weapon being unraveled into string which is then used to fly kites and balloons, and to jump rope. The 2nd winner, Michelle Li, named her poster ‘Peace in our Hands’, which features a shadow puppet of a peace dove above a broken nuclear weapon.
