Creative influencer and visual storyteller, Rames Harikrishnasamy posted a stunning image that will definitely bring you some much-needed joy in these difficult times.
The self-taught digital artist and concept artist from Malaysia creates art that is inspired by the Hindu religion. His forte is recreating the beloved gods as children, some being mischievous while others are exploring the world through innocent eyes. Harikrishnasamy always includes a short story to go with each image filled with love, hope, and curiosity. He not only posts art but tutorial videos as well on how to use Photoshop.
Recently, the talented artist posted a new piece of digital art inspired by the front-line workers of the Coronavirus. His image was of Dr. Latha, a young doctor from Kerala who went on to work in Tamil Nadu where she cared for critical patients facing COVID-19. She took no time to sleep as she worked tirelessly for her patients. Each day, Dr. Latha only took five minutes out of her day to meditate and rejuvenate herself spirituality. Her selflessness is what pushed a young Maa Durga to place her own crown of glory on the lovely Dr. Latha. This immense honor is deserving of an individual who places the well being of others as their highest priority, even if it means placing themselves at risk.
Harikrishnasamy used his art and his short story to highlight the very real individuals working in hospitals and clinics all across the world caring for the ill, just like his character Dr. Latha. This image is a touching way to honor the heroes that are currently on the front-line such as doctors, nurses, medical assistants, respiratory therapists, medical technicians and more. Harikrishnasamy’s image is compassionate, inspiring and filled with love – all things we need more of to make it through this pandemic together.
