A 10-year-old Afghan refugee dubbed "Little Picasso" has an art show in Belgrade, with proceeds going to help a sick Serbian boy.


Farhad Nouri is a 10 year-old Afghan refugee living in Serbia, who has been dubbed “Little Picasso” for his artistic skills, and now he has been given his first exhibition in Belgrade.

He is using the show to raise money for another child in need.

“We met Farhad one month after he arrived to Serbia, after few days in the refugee center we discovered his talent and then he started attending school for painting and photography and we wanted to show a retrospective of what he has achieved during the classes,” says the Refugees Foundation’s Anita Milev.

All the money Farhad’s pictures earn will go towards the medical treatment in Paris for a young Serbian boy recovering from brain tumor surgery.

He likes drawing portraits, including Harry Potter, Salvador Dali and Picasso himself, and he also takes photos and records his family’s daily life in Serbia. His dream is to make it to Switzerland one day to become a painter and photographer.
