Virtual Art of Isolation exhibition launches featuring lockdown-inspired pieces

In this period of isolation, we’re all getting pretty creative.

Whether that’s by making abstract art, working out using household items like water bottles and tin cans, or even learning a new language via K-pop music, no one can say social distancing hasn’t led to some pretty amazing innovations.

And now you can see what the more naturally-creative among us have been up to during lockdown thanks to this virtual exhibition.

The Art of Isolation features work from Saudi amateurs, professionals and children made over the past few months.

Pieces include isolation portraits, abstract isolation works and even paintings that focus on digital isolation.

You’ll be able to move between galleries using your keyboard and mouse, and you can click on the floor in front of a piece to mimic standing in front of it.

The exhibition, which uses virtual reality technology, is the first of its kind in Saudi Arabia. It is hoped it will encourage innovation in the cultural field.
