The Art Of Doing Nothing: Maanvi Kapur's Accurate Representation Of Our Slow Lockdown Days

We would be lying if we said the thought of getting to spend hours on end at home in our own comfort didn’t excite us at first. We began by making the most of the initial Coronavirus lockdown days by baking all kinds of bread possible, trying our hand at arts and craft, and sometimes even by going on a cleaning spree.

The excitement dulled down to hours of laying under our blankets, phone in hand, till it was time for the next meal. Artist Maanvi Kapur experienced a similar situation and illustrated it perfectly in ‘The Art Of Doing Nothing’.

Aptly titled, the illustration will unquestionably bring about a sense of relatability since we have all spent extended periods of time doing absolutely nothing.

Maanvi says, “Plants are my best friends now and I am most at ease when I’m surrounded by them, sipping on my tea and staring into space (mostly my phone).”

The art of doing nothing is not something we mind performing day in and day out. While there seem to be minimal downsides about lazing around with a beverage of choice in hand, we wonder: for how long?
