Artist description: “I don’t like vegetables, but I like to go swimming, and I like riding my bike. When I grow up, I want to be a car designer.I chose Guy Fawkes Day as my tradition because I like the heat of the bonfires and the colours of the fireworks. In the 1600s, Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the House of Parliament. We celebrate Guy Fawkes Day on November 5th every year by lighting bonfires and burning a ‘guy.’ We also set off fireworks.”
