Rappler highlights how art continuously moves during the pandemic through the eyes of 5 different artists, in just 180 seconds

With the pandemic, it seems like everything in life has to take a pause. Events are cancelled, work and school are online, and in-person socializing is frowned upon. But the glass is also half full – it has given us more time for personal reflection and other passions that were always put on hold. 

To celebrate National Arts Month 2021, Rappler highlights how art continuously moves during the pandemic through the eyes of 5 different artists, in just 180 seconds. 

As a singer, Bea Muñoz dived deeper into her creative mind by deciding to create trilingual covers. Lance Lascano, a filmmaker, improved his skills and transitioned his art process to the new normal. 

Meanwhile, Justine Cawai, a digital and traditional artist, used her art as an anchor to keep her grounded during these hard times. Dancer Mai Moua Thao learned the importance of dancing for oneself rather than for an audience. Lastly, Lauren Lola, a writer, discovered how to harness her creative energy as an escape from today’s harsh reality.
