Stolen Smiles has been created at the end of the Covid-19 lockdown.
It shocked me to see people so afraid of one another and hiding behind their masks when it feels so good to smile at others and get a smile in return.
In the end, that is what allows us to connect & what makes us human.
Stolen Smiles represents the explosion of colors, joy, and happiness that lies behind our masks.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that wearing a mask is a bad thing right now. What I am saying though is that it removes all your expressions and most non-verbal communication. So, just be aware to try to see beyond the masks when you wear one and meet people who wear one.
This is a unique and original piece.
Mix media on high-quality canvas, 120 x 100 X 4.5 cm.
