Art students in Lucknow, took to roads with the aim to spread awareness against the spread of the novel Coronavirus. On Sunday, a handful of students from Lucknow University's Arts College conducted an awareness drive in Daliganj's Mansarovar Mandir ward with the help of captivating art.

These students spent hours hunched over roads in an effort to paint a singular message, with hopes that the art will make home in the hearts and minds of local residents. These students made the grey roads come to life with vibrant colours, a message to stay home and practice caution.

The art included a depiction of the fearsome coronavirus, masks, as well as healthcare and sanitation professionals hard at work. While one painting simply reminded us that the entire world is currently locked down, the other expressed hope of defeating the virus with the right attitude. Rakesh Prabhakar, Amit Rajan Verma, Surdeep Yadav, Dhirendra Pratap, Vijay Veer, Surya Deep Yadav and Shanti Veer, among others, spent hours bringing these artistic expressions to life.

While the frequency of reported cases seem to have slowed down and plasma treatment has also begun in Lucknow, prevention against the deadly virus is still better than the cure. Which is exactly what the students preached- you can save yourself and your loved ones from contracting the viral disease by simply staying at home, practicing social distancing and practicing precautionary measures.
