Day 7 – Art in the time of Corona

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 the art project – “Art in the time of Corona” 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 due to coronavirus pandemic.

Malobika about herself and her painted rocks :
I’m a self-taught rock painter from the NCR. I’ve been painting rocks for over a year now and I love how a hand-painted rock can make people smile. Seeing the otherwise plain rocks turn into colorful art pieces gives me immense joy and this is also a sustainable gifting option. Painting rocks have helped me stay calm during this difficult period. I’m sharing pictures of the rocks that I’ve painted during this time, and my art supplies, in the hope that looking at them will bring joy and cheer to people.
