Day 3 – Art during lockdown

Art during corona pandemic – hope and positivity through creativity, is an art project announced  by Indiaart and Khula Aasmaan, to showcase artistic creations by all during the lockdown period to fight Covid-19 pandemic. This art project to showcase select art during lockdown has been supported by Finolex Industries and Mukul Madhav Foundation. It is designed to counter the atmosphere of fear and panic created due to coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. We believe that hope and positivity through creativity is the answer to the challenge posed by the uncertain times and the lockdown during this Covid-19 pandemic. Here are select artworks from Day 3 of Art during Lockdown.

Tanvi Shah at work

Tanvi Shah uses scrap and junk products to give it a new meaning and a whole new purpose.

Tanvi Shah on her work : In this project of mine I have used plastic bottles of shampoo, talc powder, detergent liquid, perfumes etc.; to make the statement show piece or vases.

Tanvi Shah’s creations

I have painted them with chalk paints. I Have also given 2 of these bottles some texture with the help of tissue paper. This project is inspired by the artist Foekje Fleur. I was accumulating the plastic bottles and caps for a while. I find these different shapes of the plastic bottles quite interesting. I always like to give my project a unique name and I gave this project name “Trash to Treasure” because literally we dump these into the trash and never try to think of any usages out of the same. Hence the name. I just loved the end result of this project and I am sure you’ll will love it too.
