This painting is meant to reflect on this difficult time we find ourselves in. People are divided yet strangely united, as we are all fighting the same battle. My projects and interests vary from time to time, and I felt the need to create something relevant and inspiring since the world is in need of positive and encouraging words and visuals.
The seven canvases symbolise the seven continents of Earth. My aim is to capture the essence of the situation in a more hopeful and symbolic way. Europe, the smaller in size continent is in the centre as it is the centre of the pandemic. This planet with all that it entails is leaving a fingerprint on all of us and it is our choice and duty to decide to remain strong, united and creative through it all.
