Description: Javier Calleja is continuing efforts to help out his city of Málaga during the coronavirus pandemic by teaming up with Festival de Málaga to create a series of protective face masks. “This way culture is supporting culture,” Calleja says. The artist donated his artwork and designs to help out one of the most important cultural events in his city, as big businesses that were regular sponsors had to back out from supporting this year’s event.

Back in March, Calleja produced a limited edition sculpture titled Do Not Touch and purchased 200,000 face masks for local hospitals with the proceeds from the sales. This time, he hopes to help out a different cause but in a similar manner: using his work to highlight the devastating impact of COVID-19. He hopes his seven face mask designs provide a sense of encouragement and calmness during this time. The images feature Calleja’s signature characters, close-ups of their noses and mouths, as well as textual messages.
