Edge brings “Art in the Times of Coronavirus”. This is an open call to artists, of all forms of expression, to share COVID-19 inspired artworks and the stories behind them. The submission period began on 15th May and will end on 31st July.
There is no better time than the pandemic lockdown to reflect on the importance of art, not just for those with a predisposition to it, but for all thinkers. Art has been around for longer than recorded history, it is not something at the periphery – art is actually at the very center of our existence. Art is a form of healing and recovery, which we often rely on during our darkest hours.
With this in mind, Edge reached out to art lovers to share their COVID-19-inspired artworks and the stories behind. Many artworks and stories received by Edge by now, from both young artists and established, depict various themes such as the inevitability of death, income disparity, political commentary, loneliness versus solitude, domestic violence, the resurgence of nature, etc. To know better about the artworks and for further details click here.
