Hi, I'm Sarvenaz Sohrabi. I'm an artist, a researcher in the field of Art & Health and the project lead for the "Paint your Pain" project run out of The University of Southampton. I decided to launch the Paint Corona Pain initiative as a way to help us all deal with the emotional stress and trauma we're living with on a daily basis as a result of the Corona virus pandemic. 

I've seen first hand the healing power of art and I wanted to share this with as many people as possible. Through Paint Corona Pain my aim is to help as many people as I can and through the collection of the images of your feelings and better understand how Corona virus is affecting us all, so as a society we can provide the type of support we need to help us all recover from this difficult situation.

Thank you all for your interest and support.  Be safe and be kind.

Paint Corona Pain is an initiative linked to the "Paint Your Pain" project.  Paint Your Pain is an ongoing project run out of the University of Southamption that helps provide a better representation of pain.  People create a pictoral representation of pain related to any illness.   The project then analyses the artworks by detecting differences in shapes, colours, brush strokes, size of drawings, etc.  Each painting tells the story of different types of pain and emotion.
