Apocalyptic Watercolors

The “Poetic Watercolor” painter group in China has originated as an outlet for painters to pay their respects to the healthcare heroes of their country.

Although these painters are not able to fight on the front lines, they show their support visually.

Through the use of their collective artistic work, this group aims to praise the “angels in white” who are dedicating their lives to fighting this pandemic.
