Amazingly intricate surreal art about lockdown by Marija Tiurina

When the covid-related quarantine began back in March I had this idea to start a big watercolor piece that would be constructed out of people’s submissions. Imagine a large painting that is like a weird salad where everyone’s thoughts, memories, dreams and ideas are mixed in a bowl and dressed with my imagination – well, after about two months of work it’s finally here and I’m happy to share it with you. ~ Marija Tiurina

Lockdown In Watercolor – by Marija Tiurina

” I decided to visualise people’s submissions straight onto paper and then began to outline them without creating a sketch or planning a layout – I wanted to keep the whole process quite raw and intuitive. It’s possible I didn’t come up with the perfect placement for things, but the creatures and the objects landed where they wanted to sit and became a big organic (yet pretty weird and alien) family.” ~ Marija Tiurina
