Many artists are currently without work. But not without inspiration.

We’ve invited them to make art. Art that reflects on their quarantine time, on the corona virus or on new beginnings. We promise to help them sell their work at the first post-pandemic art expo.

Get to know them below. Every week, we add new artists to our site. So check back often, or follow our instagram account.

Ps. If you like their work, consider buying a piece, or booking them for an assignment.

Since the corona virus hit the globe my day job as a freelance Designer has gone dark, but I've loved finding the light within the cracks. It's given me an opportunity to self-reflect, to day dream and stop to watch the clouds pass. I started creating again, just for me. I got my pencils out and started sketching things around me that made me stop and appreciate where I am right now. Sunlight, reflections, blue skies, nature, a moment sitting in the sun, wobbly buildings. Simple things that inspired light in a dark situation

Now that we are forced to stay at home, to be more technologically connected, but less physically connected, we have the space to notice that everything we feel, negative or positive, lies in our hands. Every time we see our hands, we can still remember that we always hold the power and the creativity to make beautiful things. I will create a series of 5 Illustrations about hands and what they can hold. Each illustration will be connected to the rest of the illustrations in the series so that anybody who ends up with a piece will always be connected to a group of others.

During this corona-crisis the world gets smaller and smaller. We miss our loved ones, the outside, friends and fun. We are forced to think how to fill our days and are a bit scared of what the future brings us. However during this corona-outbreak, me as an artist, also sees good things happening.The sky is clearer, there are more birds in the sky and that’s where my focus lies. I mostly draw birds, bringing the outside in houses. All kinds of birds. My work as an artist now feels useful. While most people sit inside, I want to give them hope, by drawing the works of the outside for inside. So they have something to enjoy.

I've used this time under quarantine to finally record my internal running dialogue, which has been unchecked for years, to print. It's been an amazing process as I see how the written word has opened up and provided critical meaning when paired with my photographic images. As a storyteller I strive to connect with the viewer and share my vision and understanding of the world as interpreted through my lens. The story could be about anything, but the underlying emotions are universal. Together we discover a common truth.

I don’t know yet but I will probably involve screen printing somewhere in the process.

It'll be a photographic reaction and journey into whatever we'll find on our path the coming weeks or months.

Cassette tape loops, containing the (lack of) sound of a quarantined city, slowly blurring into each other, forming continuously evolving soundscapes and drones. At least, that's the theory.

During these times, we are relying heavily on technology to keep us connected. I'd like to reflect on how this is impacting us.

Eye soothing, mind soothing images will last.

I will be looking at houses found in the isolation of nature. This is where humans have chosen to be isolated from other people and prefer nature as a companion

Immerse yourself! Find controversy and awareness in Corona-time.

I will be exploring how the quarantine life has been forcing us to take everything slower. Taking the time to pause and fully feel each moment.

I'm intrigued by the human psyche during this strange time and by what makes us feel the way we do. A lot has changed in our here and now, but what about when it's all over?

Photos representing the 'emptiness' of the city, normally crowded places, and the absurd results of people’s habits.

Each day of quarantine feels different. I'd like to capture this range of emotion by creating a screen-print that celebrates a phrase commonly used in the Dutch language to communicate delight, surprise, annoyance and more. It's a timeless phrase that can describe how we felt yesterday, today and I'm sure will be used to reflect on the quarantine experience in the future.

I am sorry, but that is hard to pin-point at this moment. I can be more specific when the piece becomes more concrete.

I will participate in the expo with 2 connected series: one of spiral hurricanes (‘In the eye of the storm, there is stillness’) and one of spiral labyrinths (‘going inwards is going outwards’).

Us vs. it.

It will be a paper cut art of a quote or visual that reflects the quarantine life. The action of cutting the paper is therapeutic for me so this process is a great activity to do while staying home.
