Coronavirus has affected the whole world. People are anxious, and the streets are empty. Well, almost empty. When it comes to the streets, you can only expect one group to roam and stay loyal to them, and they are the street artists. The explanation’s quite simple: even in more peaceful times, these rogues are no strangers to risks, such as the law, and now it’s no different. Also, they wore facemasks before it was “cool.” In times where all the galleries and museums are closed, the streets have become the canvas for public imagination. Let’s take a look at how street artists around the world have interpreted the situation.
