In 2010 I created Art After The Bomb, to document Leonard Meiselman’s Atomic Bomb series. In 2004 he went to Hiroshima and at the Peace Museum where he saw a child’s shirt, tattered and destroyed, that had been found after the Hiroshima bombing. He was also struck by the image on a child’s student Identification Card. Inspired by these objects, Leonard created a series of paintings to be used to benefit peace movements, he says:

“There are thousands of people all over the world working for peace and working for non proliferation and if some day I can exhibit my works, all of them together, to benefit non-proliferation treaty groups and peace groups I will die happy.”
