The world has been devastated with this global pandemic, but it has given many artists a way to express their creative sides. I have noticed a huge increase in visual artworks in social media; many have a relation to the pandemic and their life experiences. These artists are apart of the latest movement, which I have coined the term Bioexpressionism. Bio - meaning life and relating to science / Expressionism - refers to the image of reality that is distorted in order to make it expressive of the artist's ideas or inner feelings.
I have a personal perspective with covid-19, since I work in the medical field as a Radiologic Technologist (X-ray Tech). I have to get up close and personal to position patients in order to take x-rays on patients that have covid-19. During March and April, nearly everyone I was doing an x-ray on had covid-19, and the hospital was at max capacity with patients. I see the nightmare which this virus has caused. My medical field experience in combination with my visual talents have motivated me to express myself through my artwork.
