Art Masks (Todd Williamson Facebook)

Todd Williamson discusses his face masks collection, inspired by his original paintings, available for $20 each through ArtEmerge.org:

"No one 'likes' to wear a mask and to have to wear one is very difficult!  Since we must protect ourselves and the people around us, why not wear a mask that represents the creative side to your own personality?! This is how I came up with the idea. 

I wanted something that showed my creative side, that was comfortable but also helped stop the spread of this horrible pandemic! 

The masks are 2 ply and studies show this significantly helps to curb the spread. Each mask is created from an original painting, and the available works change roughly every 6 weeks. Some of the paintings have been shown in exhibitions around the world and several were shown in the 2019 58th Venice Biennale, which, as strange as it is now, was titled "May You Live in Interesting Times!" I even designed masks to show support for the current political situation with an all blue flag, an all red flag, and "Old Glory."

ArtEmerge.org, an online gallery platform, works with only a few artists. Its goal is to make art for everyone and give people the opportunity to own an original work of art, a print, or even a mask! New artists and new masks will be part of the future for the gallery, and I will be updating mine soon!"
