Spreading of misinformation during this pandemic was quite prominent on social media, hence Vishwajeet decided to make art that would create awareness. Shifting his style from water-colour paintings to digital art, he perceived this challenge as an opportunity to create meaningful artwork. Using Photoshop and Wacom tablet for the first time, it opened up doors for unique and new creative ideas. As for the uncertain future, Vishwajeet feels that daily-wage workers and professionals are suffering but things would eventually become better and normal.
