Day 9 – Paintings during Lockdown

Art in the time of Corona – hope and positivity through creativity” is an art project featuring lockdown painting 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 lockdown painting with whatever they could get at home as the shops were closed during lockdown.

Menaka, a homemaker, mentions this about her artwork :
I wanted to paint something that day to keep the negativity away, tried to paint flowers but it didn’t work.
Suddenly my eyes fell on the migrants walking trough the road holding there little kids. My heart started crying.
Then what I painted is the result, I am sending today.

Charlette Aaron, Mumbai about her art :
I made these sketches on handmade paper with photo colours in a small diary . The theme of all of them is to remain indoors during this pandemic, learn something new and focus on hobbies and positivity.
This initiative is a great way to get people sitting at home in lockdown to explore their hidden talents and art is the best way to relax !  Art in the form of doodles is my hobby .
The art that I have shared is particularly made during the quarantine period at home that we all are in . It represents what can be done in these times and what can be planned for the future . Stay home stay safe is the motto to share with all !
