Greeting from Gyumri

Postcards were chosen as a medium of expression because we were confined when I wrote it. The global health crisis situation no longer allowed us to satisfy our mobility expectations. All over the planet, travel was becoming more and more constrained. So moving to Armenia to implement our actions was no longer possible.Postcards were the means to deliver an illustrated testimony (in watercolour) of distant reality in Armenia through actual situation prism.
