This illustration shows the character in the drawing trying to escape from different rooms, looking for Utopia. Those rooms represent a series of natural and man-made disasters that occurred in 2020: COVID-19, locust plagues, forest fires, floods, and earthquakes. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people’s life profoundly- limiting flights, travel bans and social distance keeping. Meanwhile, we also see people from different places in the world treat coronavirus differently. The disasters that happened in 2020 have made us overwhelmed. We want to escape from the chaos to find our Utopia. The pandemic will disappear eventually, the sun will rise again. I hope this piece will also remind people to think about the relationship between human and nature, how to balance our ecosystem and protect our home on Earth.
