A day at the sea.
Through Corona became that drawing a much stronger meaning.
The seagull in art symbolizes travel and homesickness, but also freedom and borders. Over the past year, we've lost a lot of what we took for granted: being close to other people, physical contact, getting out in the fresh air, or traveling whenever you want, wherever you want, however you want. The painting speaks about the desire to be able to go back to the sea again, to feel the fresh wind in the hair, to be fearless, to listen the screams of the seagulls. And it speaks also about the desire to return to the old life.
