How to Spend Quarantine Creatively in Russia: Look Like a Painting
During this dark time, a group of Russians started a Facebook project called ART-ISOLATION to fight to blues by recreating famous paintings. The rules are: no photoshop, post only your own creations done now during self-isolation, use only what you have on hand, and no boring, insulting, or otherwise depressing commentary. Isolation seems not to have dimmed the creative spirit.
