Mousa created these portraits during self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While reflecting on both the lost lives of vulnerable populations who were victims of failed public health policies and systemic racism. Over the years, Mousa has developed an artistic vocabulary of symbols, colors, cultural references, and gestural mark-making to reflect upon politics, world events, societal mores, culture, and beauty. He mines his personal story to produce commentary about the world. For this series, Mousa was drawn to illustrate segments of the affected peoples to connect the viewer to their struggles and record the historical changes occurring across the US and throughout the world.
