The pandemic changed the way we work, travel, relate to people, go out, live. How did it affect artists' work? We asked artists in different parts of the world how the pandemic year influenced their work routines, productivity and creative flow.
Maryam Lamei Harvani lives and works in in Istanbul, Turkey.
Although this period is one of the most difficult periods of my life, I try to use a new perspective that the pandemic has imposed on our attitude as human beings, in order to create works with new concepts and to do my part to beautify the world.
Under the shelter of generosity. Limite edition print.
For years, I spent most of my day painting behind my desk, at home.
As the pandemic started, I realized that my life had not changed, and I realized that I needed to spend more time outside, to see the beauties of the world.
In every period of life the external conditions that govern the life of an artist affect their soul and are reflected in his or her works. Helplessness and loneliness, despite the existence of technology, and also the experience of stress and anxiety in the living space has affected me and my work.
