A WARRINGTON Britain’s Got Talent finalist is set to display artwork in his hometown.

Aneeshwar Kunchala, the Warrington child-star of Britain’s Got Talent 2022, will be exhibiting the artwork at Warrington Museum as part of a new exhibition with an environmental message.

The young conservationist has teamed up with sculptor Val Hunt to present ‘Wake Me Up Before You Dodo’ at Warrington Museum, starting on Saturday, 29 July.

Aneeshwar’s goal is to show the beauty of wildlife through his art and how little changes in our lives can help a variety of creatures impacted by issues such as habitat loss, pollution, poaching and climate change.

It is the award-winning eight-year-old’s second exhibition after an incredible opportunity as a guest artist at The Kennedy Center’s RiverRun festival in Washington.

Images of some of Aneeshwar’s favourite animals will be on display, including the lemur leaf frog, Bengal tiger and peregrine falcon.

He said: “I hope we can all work together to save the animals and make sure the Earth looks beautiful. 

“I am very excited to collaborate with Warrington Museum to showcase my artwork here in the UK for the first time.

"I had an amazing experience at my first art exhibition at The Kennedy Center, where I met lots of children and had a great time exploring some of the fantastic animals in my gallery.”

Aneeshwar will be joined by recycling artist Val Hunt, who ‘reincarnates’ rubbish to create animal sculptures with an environmental message, and there will also be specially curated items from the museum’s own collections.

Producer Roger Jeffery added: “We are really excited about launching Wake Me Up Before You Dodo at Warrington Museum at the end of the month.

“It is an eye-catching and family-friendly exhibition, but we also hope it makes people stop and think about the wider world around them and the animals we share the planet with.

“It ties in with a wider environmentally themed event in the town center that same weekend, where among lots of other things you can meet a giant sea puppet called Eko in Time Square and hear stories about the sea from a life-sized whale in Palmyra Square. We are proud to be a part of it.”
