What was the inspiration behind your artwork?

The current Covid19 pandemic situation inspired me to create a model to use in science communication and education explaining the virus structure, mode of replication and correct Covid19 misinformation.

What do you see as the similarity between science and art? Why is science-art important in today's society?

Art is the best tool to explain science. Complex scientific information can be illustrated in many art forms into simple attractive concepts that are easy to understand.
