Untitled (Kissing couple with face masks)

Venice Beach. 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?"
A couple (male and female) ignoring social distancing guidelines by kissing, but also wearing face masks. The figures are rendered boldly in black and white, and the face masks are adorned with a multi-colored floral pattern. The woman's eyes are open.
