Artist Uses Her Sink As A Canvas And Lets The Water Destroy Her Paintings 24 Hours Later (26 Pics)

During quarantine, a lot of professionals were left without a job or something to do. Many of them decided to use their skills and talent in something else so that they wouldn’t lose their touch. But what if you run out of supplies and can’t go to a shop for more?

Creative director Marta Grossi is an Italian painter who lives in Milan and has worked with a lot of famous companies like Vogue, Disney, and many others. She decided she would use those hard-acquired drawing skills on an unusual canvas—her sink.

Stuck in Italy and unable to see her family, she wanted to keep herself busy and sane during these hard times of self-isolation. Which is why she started a creative project.

She named the project “Wash Your Hands and Keep Creative.” Marta painted flowers, waves, animals, and many other things on the porcelain surface, which was perfect for a reusable canvas. Colorful and happy images paired with practicing her skills made for a good way to spend those long days in quarantine. The beautiful images gave her hope and helped her find beauty in unexpected places.

She painted a picture almost every day and after 24 hours, she let the water wash it down. She filmed some of the art washing away and it’s quite satisfying to watch.
