导读:相信不少人前段时间的朋友圈都被“小朋友画廊”一元购画这个公益项目给刷屏了。只需1块钱,你就能买到一幅自闭症患者画作的数字版并献出一份爱心。这原本是件好事,却也引发了一阵质疑……
They aren’t great artists like Leonardo da Vinci or Vincent van Gogh, but their paintings are just as popular on Chinese social media, with millions of Chinese people willing to pay for them.
他们并非是像列奥纳多·达·芬奇或者文森特·梵·高那样的伟大画家,但他们的画作在中国社交媒体上也一样火了,数百万的中国人都愿意买下这些画作。

On Aug 29, many WeChat users shared their newly bought paintings on their personal pages. Some even made the paintings their smartphone wallpapers.
8月29日,不少微信用户在朋友圈里分享了他们新买的画作。一些人甚至还将这些画设为自己手机的屏幕壁纸。

The 36 works were painted by ordinary Chinese people who live with autism or cerebral palsy, aged from their early teens to late thirties. They all studied art at World of Art Brut Culture (WABC), which is a Shanghai-based non-profit organization for art education. The project was initiated by WABC and backed by the Tencent charitable foundation.
这36幅作品都出自中国自闭症或是脑瘫患者之手,年龄从十岁出头到将近四十岁不等。他们都在上海一家从事艺术教育的非营利组织“无障碍艺途”里学习美术。该项目由“无障碍艺途”发起并得到了腾讯慈善基金会的支持。

WeChat users could buy a digital copy of each painting by donating 1 yuan or more. By Aug 29, donations totaled more than 15 million yuan, with about 5.8 million people participating, reported China Daily.
微信用户可以通过捐赠1元钱或更多来购买每幅画作的数字版。据《中国日报》报道,截至8月29日,捐赠总额已经超过1500万人民币,约有580万人参与了这一项目。

“The paintings by these autistic kids and adults are beautiful; the style is similar to that of the Dutch artist van Gogh. I’m really impressed by their talent,” Feng Li, a customer service officer in Shanghai, told the South China Morning Post.
“这些自闭症儿童和成年人的画作太美了;画风和荷兰艺术家梵高的很像。我真的被他们的才华给惊艳到了,”冯莉是上海的一位客户服务专员,她在接受《南华早报》采访时如此表示。

However, the popular campaign also led to certain questions being raised.
然而,这场大受欢迎的活动也引发了一些质疑。

Li Laoxi, an experienced special education teacher in Hangzhou, said that based on his experience, people with autism could only draw a few strokes or fill in colors under the guidance of their trainers. “Maybe there are some geniuses out there, but I’ve never met them,” he told news website 163.com.
李老西是杭州一名从事特殊教育多年的老师。他认为从自己的经验来看,自闭症患者只能在训练者的指导下画一些简单的线条或是填色。“可能会有天赋异禀的自闭症患者,但我从没遇见过,”他在接受新闻网站网易采访时表示。

Others questioned where the money would go, as the donations went to WABC instead of the painters, reported Xinhua News Agency.
据新华社报道,还有人质疑钱款的去向,因为捐款都直接流向了“无障碍艺途”而非画作者本人。

In response to these concerns, Miao Shiming, founder of WABC, said the money would be used to hire art teachers, buy supplies, and rent facilities, reported People’s Daily. Meanwhile, Tencent said that all donation information would be released to the public.
据《人民日报》报道,“无障碍艺途”的创始人苗世明对这些担忧做出了回应,他表示钱款将被用于聘请美术老师,购买画材,租用设施等等。与此同时,腾讯也表示,所有捐款信息都将向公众公开。

According to Cheng Wenhao, a professor from Tsinghua University, the reason why many people hold a doubtful attitude is that China’s charities usually have low transparency. According to a study by Peking University in 2015, the transparency of 93 charities achieved an average of 35.49 points out of 100.
清华大学教授程文浩认为,不少人对此持怀疑态度的原因在于中国的慈善机构透明度通常不高。据北京大学2015年发布的一项研究表明,93家慈善机构的透明度在百分制评分中平均只拿到了35.49分。

While China passed its first Charity Law in 2016 to improve transparency, “efforts are still needed to ensure the fairness of the charity campaigns”, wrote Global Times.
尽管我国于2016年通过了首部《慈善法》以提高(慈善机构的)透明度,“但仍需努力确保慈善活动的公平性,”《环球时报》写道。
