The artist says: “People are scared, worried and missing their loved ones. It has changed everyone’s lives all across the world. The restrictions and way of life has changed since COVID-19 has arrived. This is why the painting is called ‘Hope’ and its content presents a hope of everyone coming through this difficult time and a ray of light to endeavour”. The work features over 100 languages. The second piece is titled ‘Conquer from Within’- The artist is inspired by meditation, with a passion for dance and painting. This work gives different elements of elegance and an expression of the 7 chakras (7 colours) in a whole new light. “We want the freedom of the mind and the peace to oneself in all situations of life.”
