Md. Ibrahim 


Md. Ibrahim, a Bangladeshi student who had left China because of an exhibition tour, also hopes to use art to express his deep affection for Wuhan and those who offered their help. Although he couldn’t return to Wuhan because of the lockdown, the city was always on his mind, and inspired him to create 4 new paintings.

According to him, “This project is about the epidemic in Wuhan. I love Wuhan. This city is my second home. People in Wuhan have been hit hard by this deadly virus. I think in this situation, all the doctors, nurses, volunteers, and workers are the real heroes and their efforts should not be forgotten. As the coronavirus spreads across the country, everyone with suspicious symptoms are carefully tended to by doctors and nurses. They make quick and accurate diagnosis, saving not only their patients’ lives, but also their own. This is why I focused on them in my works.”

Following are his paintings and relevant descriptions he gave.
