Description

On a blue/black backdrop painted as a celestial sky, a large skeleton head and hand are painted in vividly colored shading and detail. The skeleton's hand is opening toward a coronavirus image. The skeleton appears to be looking at the virus with awe, or contemplation. The artist appears to primarily paint text-based works, and this is the only COVID-related painting on their Instagram. Thus, the title "For Current Events" highlights the uniqueness of this artwork for them.
