Graffiti Based On The Coronavirus Speaking Some Hurtful Truths

Lockdown caused by the novel coronavirus has put our lives on hold on so many aspects, and unfortunately, for some others, it has turned it into zero ground level. Streets are empty everywhere, giving an eerie sensation to everything around us.

But those who were always loyal to the streets, the street artists, once again are here to give voice to this deafening silence of the empty streets. After all, these artists are no strange to risks, such as law, even during safe times, and now it’s no difference. Besides, they wore masks before this became a “trend”, and judging by the graffiti they made, they are quite well aware of the risk from coronavirus. So we’re pretty sure they used protective equipment and washed their hands after they created these sadly beautiful murals and street graffiti.

Take a look for yourself below and let us know which ones you like or relate to the most! Stay safe, Earth Wanders!

From the artist’s Instagram: “We all are going through this together. There is a reason which we will see after all. It’s time to look at ourselves. Take a look at what are we doing with the planet and our lifetime. Maybe we should change our priorities? Maybe we should slow down? Maybe we should take a look around and start respect our planet and all those with whom we share it? Maybe someone is trying to hide some changes? Or economic collapse? Maybe one more step to a new world order?”
