Tree of Hope, painting by Sumdima Rai, Mumbai, Maharashtra
Art does not exist just for commercial purpose. It has the power to touch people’s lives, move them to a myriad of emotions, and connect them to a higher power within themselves. That is why, this art initiative to spread positivity in the times of corona is especially important.
I am a writer, painter and assistant director in films.
I have been painting for 5 years. I am a self-taught artist who accidentally picked up a paintbrush during the darkest period of my life. Least to add, painting healed me inside out. And I have never looked back ever since then.
The whole world is in shambles due to coronavirus. As the battle rages on in so many different levels, hope is the greatest need of the hour. So, in these uncertain times, I offer this ‘Tree of Hope’ to everyone in the world fighting the battle with corona their own way with a message: “We will emerge victorious in the end…. Just hang onto every ounce of strength you got and have faith in yourself and nature.”
