Artist Kadir Nelson's evocative response to the pandemic

"I think what's in my head is the idea, or the feeling, that I want it to have," said artist Kadir Nelson.

"It has to have an emotion?" asked correspondent Lee Cowan.

"Yeah, yeah. I think that's what makes art art!"



Nelson has been emoting one brush stroke at a time for decades.

Perhaps you've seen his work on the cover of The New Yorker, or in children's books; he's a celebrated illustrator, too. But his work also hangs in galleries and museums. Collectors eagerly seek him out. And what he does best, is what we need most of all right now: the strength of the human spirit, celebrated.

"I think it's a crucial moment,' Nelson said, "and I need to have a voice and create an image that will give people hope."

His latest work is titled "After the Storm." "All these people, all these figures in the painting, they have their eye on a common goal," he said.

It was still a work in progress when Cowan visited Nelson's Los Angeles studio earlier this month (at a healthy social distance, of course), but even in its earliest stages its message was clear.

"I think one of the things that we're probably missing, a lot of people are missing now, is human touch, because we have to stay so far away from one another," Nelson said. "So, I wanted to make sure to emphasize that that is part of being a human being, is human touch."

Little hands holding big, old hands clasping young.

While working on it, Nelson explained, "The painting will tell me what it needs, what it wants."

"It really speaks to you that way?" asked Cowan.

"Yeah," he replied. "It's a conversation."

Nelson started having that conversation with crayons when he was just a boy – one in particular: "It was the Incredible Hulk beating up the Fantastic 4 and Spider-man. And I thought, 'Wow, this is a narrative painting,' I didn't realize that's what it was, but I've always really found joy in telling stories with my work."

And those stories have gotten noticed. Just this year, his illustrations for the book "The Undefeated" garnered him not only the Coretta Scott King Book Award, but also the coveted 2020 Caldecott Medal – the Oscar of the children's book industry. "This was the year that I was given the biggest prize in children's literature!" he said,

But the threat of COVID-19 cancelled the Caldecott ceremony.

Cowan said, "That's gotta be disappointing."

"It was a bit disappointing, but I expected it," he replied.

He's spent years painting his passion: the heroes from Negro League Baseball. He was going to help celebrate their centennial this year, but COVID-19 struck that out, too. "But I totally understand. It takes a back seat to all of what we're experiencing. That's just where we are at the moment," Nelson said.

So, he's spent this uncomfortable moment painting the better moment to come.

He finished "After the Storm" this past week; this is the first time anyone's seen it.

With the pandemic closing museums and galleries across the US, artists have been heading to the street to find a way of making an impact through their work. Whether it’s with villainous cartoon-like germs, soldiers armed with Purell or even just a friendly reminder to wash your hands, creatives have found a collective coping strategy for dealing with Covid-19.

West coast street artist Hijack Art has created a mural of two soldiers fending off the coronavirus in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of LA. “This particular issue involving the coronavirus and all the devastation it’s leaving in its wake, was a no-brainer for me,” said the artist. “The fear and call to action of this pandemic has really captured the imagination of many in and outside my city.” Located at the intersection of West Pico Boulevard at Reeves Street, the two characters in the piece are wearing Hazmat suits, while attempting to fend off the virus with a feather duster, Windex, hand sanitizer and a vacuum bearing a “No Covid-19” symbol. It taps into the dire need for alcohol-based hand sanitizers. “It’s been a mixed bag of careless spring breakers, toilet paper hoarders, conspiracy theorists and hypochondria,” adds Hijack. “I’m being told ‘it feels like we’re in wartime,’ so I also wanted to add that element to the piece.”

New Orleans artist Terrance Osborne unveils 'Front Line' painting

http://www.thelouisianawe...us-crisis/


New Orleans artist Terrance Osborne unveiled a new painting to honor heroes on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Osborne said the piece entitled "Front Line" nods to the iconic World War II-era "Rosie the Riveter" poster. Osborne's work depicts a female medical professional during the coronavirus crisis.

You can see the concept is that this lady is on the front line. She's risking her life everyday to make sure that we're safe," Osborne said in a Facebook video unveiling the project.The artist said the painting honors medical professionals and other service industry "front line" workers like grocery store employees, bus drivers and other first responders.

In the painting, the subject is shown wearing scrubs with medical shield on the shoulder, and her arm bears a tattoo that says "Front Line."

Osborne said the band-aid on the worker's arm is "a symbol that these workers are as susceptible to the virus as everyone else."

The worker is also shown wearing fleur-de-lis earrings as a nod to New Orleans and Louisiana, along with the "infamous mask."

"Look at the expression on her face," Osborne said in the video. "She's courageous; she's serious about what's she's doing."

Osborne said he is giving away 1,000 posters to local hospitals.

To pre-order prints of "Front Line," go to terranceosborne.com.

Incredible street art springs up around UK and Ireland amid coronavirus lockdown

Incredible street art and graffiti has been popping up across the UK and Ireland over the last few weeks as the coronavirus pandemic grips the world.

From London's street art epicentre of Shoreditch, to the small West Yorkshire town of Pontefract, the graffiti scene is flourishing with coronavirus-themed masterpieces.

Rainbows and NHS logos have been incorporated into murals to pay tribute to frontline healthcare workers battling the pandemic in cities such as Liverpool, Glasgow and Dublin.

posting reply after reply after reply after reply to yourself is thread bumping. and its against the rules.

Go to the Art forum and report them over there. Understand different between a picture/art thread and a debate thread. Did you report the Prince photo thread in PMM? Because the purpose is to post pictures/art.

'I am not a virus.' How this artist is illustrating coronavirus-fueled racism

Arts Apr 1, 2020 1:37 PM EDTA morning commute becomes tense as an Asian girl looks up from her phone in disbelief. The white woman sitting beside her says, "Shouldn't you get off this tram?" Inspired by recent events, Korean-Swedish artist Lisa Wool-Rim Sjöblom is addressing the hostility Asians increasingly are facing during the COVID-19 global pandemic in a series of one-panel comics.

Sjöblom's images, shared on her Instagram account, tackle the racism directed at the Asian community since initial cases of novel coronavirus were reported late last year in Wuhan, China. The title of her series stemmed from a hashtag, #IAmNotAVirus, that was started by French Asians in response to racist incidents on public transportation and through social media. The movement has also inspired other illustrators on Instagram to create art in response.

The Asian community went "from being invisible" to being "hyper-visible, but as a virus or as a carrier of a virus," said Sjöblom.

As novel coronavirus spreads around the globe, so have xenophobic misinformation, harrassment, discrimination and insults. It's manifesting in customers disappearing from Chinatown districts in some Western countries, and aggravated assaults against the Asian community. Baseless business boycotts and vandalism have targeted other East Asian communities as well. The Stop AAPI Hate initiative has received more than 750 direct reports of discrimination against Asian Americans in the U.S., where women were three times more likely to be targeted and 61 percent of respondents were non-Chinese.

Beautiful. I love this one, I even like the graffiti. All of the ones in the link you posted are dynamite. The Guardian does such a nice job with artwork. Love the black backgrounds and richness in color.

In response to the growing risk of COVID-19 spreading throughout our jails, prisons and detention centers at an alarming rate, award winning artists, system impacted individuals, leading organizers on the frontlines and influential organizations from around the country have come together to launch the #WeMatterToo Campaign to pressure public officials to take action to remedy the situation, amplify the voices and stories of people who are incarcerated and empower communities to be agents of change. Every day that goes by without action means more people will get sick with COVID-19 and die. Visit https://www.wemattertoo.co/ for more information.
