Art: The Covid Series

The major American animator, director, artist, and longtime friend of Logos, Ralph Bakshi, has recently produced a series of painting inspired by his bouts with Covid.

Of the experience, Bakshi writes:

“When painting a still life or a landscape, you get many different feelings as the painting moves on. With the covid paints, no feeling changed… ever. Not once.”

Bakshi is also contributing to efforts to provide relief and assistance to victims of the Maui fires. You can learn more by visiting his website.
