Size Guide


As a painting that captures a moment in time, this piece depicts the Tanzania airport during the COVID-19 pandemic. The scene is one that is both familiar and unfamiliar, as we see a place that was once bustling with travelers and activity, now transformed by the global health crisis.

The painting presents a panoramic view of the airport, with the focal point being the Air Tanzania plane in the center of the canvas. The aircraft's bright colors and logo stand out against the muted tones of the surrounding environment, making it clear that this is a picture of a bustling and active airport.

As we take a closer look, we see that the airport is now operating under strict COVID-19 protocols. Passengers can be seen disembarking the plane, all wearing face masks to protect themselves and others. They are being screened for COVID-19, with temperature checks and other protocols in place to ensure everyone's safety.

The painting also captures the sense of movement and transition that is so characteristic of airports. We see a bus in the foreground of the painting, presumably on the move taking passengers to the terminal building. Its doors are closed, and we can see people on board.

The artist has done an excellent job of capturing the sense of tension and unease that characterizes life during the pandemic. The muted tones of the background, combined with the bright colors of the airplane and the people's masks, creates a sense of contrast and tension that is both visually striking and emotionally evocative.

One of the most interesting things about this painting is the way it captures a moment in history. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every corner of the world, and this painting serves as a poignant reminder of the ways in which our lives have been transformed by this global health crisis.

It is also worth noting that the painting is incredibly detailed and realistic. The artist has captured every nuance of the airport environment, from the textures of the tarmac to the reflections on the plane's windows. This attention to detail makes the painting feel incredibly authentic and adds to its emotional impact.

In terms of the technical aspects of the painting, the artist has used a combination of techniques to create a sense of depth and movement. The use of perspective, with the airplane in the center of the canvas and the bus in the foreground, creates a sense of distance and movement that draws the viewer's eye into the painting.

The use of light and shadow is also masterful, with the bright sunlight casting long shadows across the tarmac and the airplane. This not only adds to the realism of the painting but also creates a sense of drama and tension that is in keeping with the subject matter.

Overall, this painting is a powerful reminder of the ways in which our lives have been transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It captures a moment in time that is both familiar and unfamiliar, and reminds us of the challenges we have faced and the resilience we have shown in the face of adversity.
