Even with all art galleries shutting down as a result of the pandemic, art itself has not stopped. In fact, it’s flourished.

During this time of uncertainty, it’s easy to lose faith and let the blues get the best of you. It’s a feeling that is completely normal. But through their art, many street artists, particularly those in the US city of Seattle, have been able to share their messages of support, love and hope to those passing by.

If you’re feeling a little hopeless and lacking motivation, here are some beautiful creative artworks found in some of the most unexpected places that are sure to lift your mood. You can even show off some of your creative skills.


In normal circumstances, Seattle is a city full of life and joy with its famous live music venues and its trendy eating spots, and clearly the pandemic isn’t stopping the Seatlleites’ passion and love for their city. Artists have become even more creative with their work by decorating boarded up shops with inspiring colours and words of wisdom and hope.
