In my country and culture it is very unusual to see people with masks, so after coming to Korea and with being in this Situation of the Coronavirus, I had to get used to see a lot of masks around me.

For me it was always a comfort to look at art or even create art myself in hard times so I thought as a comfort for other people and myself I wanted to create something beautiful and pretty out of something that I normally connect with hard times. I wanted to take used masks and use them as a canvas to create something new out of it - something people could enjoy looking at. I disenfected the used masks so I can touch them without worrying and started to paint
