Day 4 – Art project during coronavirus pandemic

“Art in the time of Corona – hope and positivity through creativity” is an art project during coronavirus pandemic, which was announced the very next day after the national lockdown was declared by the Prime Minister of India on the night of 24th March 2020. This unique art initiative is managed by Indiaart and Khula Aasmaan. It has been supported by Finolex Industries and Mukul Madhav Foundation. Our appeal of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic with creativity of art has been well received by people of all age groups and professions. The participants in this art project are from diverse domains – school children, college students, working professionals, homemakers and senior citizens. Most of them are self taught. They all have created art using whatever they could get at home as all shops were closed during the strict national lockdown.

Jude on himself and his art :
About myself:
I am going to be 15 next month. I am a student of Cambridge High School, Kandivli, Mumbai who will be giving my board exams in a year from now.
About my art:
I feel the lion is a symbol of power. He is the King of the jungle… a special animal from among the others in the jungle as we humans too are on earth. But he definitely knows how to sit and wait. Haven’t you seen him? Majestic as ever! He doesn’t get restless. He doesn’t pace around in temper or panic. He follows the law of the jungle at all times.We too must follow the law of the land and be patient. There is hope! There will always be hope as long as we are positive and do what is right.
