More than 7,000 paintings were drawn during the campaign “Draw Against the Virus”

Bulgarian artist Pavel Mitkov was quarantined in his home for 14 days and launched an online campaign "Draw Against the Virus – Let’s allay the Virus!". Every day, the artist gave live lessons on his Facebook page to anyone who wanted to touch the world of art. Mitkov showed innovative drawing techniques, including emblematic roosters’ paintings, water lilies and others. Over 7,000 people draw their own painting, and over 200,000 watched the lessons.
"My goal was to bring joy and good emotions in this difficult time for all of us and the fear to be overcome by art, by the beauty in human communication through drawing. Our society needs more positive news and emotions. ", says Pavel Mitkov.
The artist plans to continue his online Master classes and will soon be releasing an art product – System 5, which includes video tutorials with 5 instruments and 3 movements with them.
