As everyone is fighting the coronavirus pandemic in their own way, people all around the world are desperately waiting for the vaccine to help them cope.
An Italian artist known as TvBoy took to the streets of Barcelona to make a special artwork for Christmas.
In one of the streets people who walk by gathered to see a painting of Santa Claus carrying the coronavirus vaccine on his back.
As if to depict it could be Santa’s gift to the world that is suffering with the pandemic.
People who walk by the artwork stopped to share a sigh of relief as if to say, that’s all they want this Christmas, a solution to all the suffering.
The painting also has Feliz Navidad written on it. Feliz Navidad is a Spanish phrase meaning "Happy Christmas" or "Merry Christmas".
In another artwork that follows, TvBoy shows the police arresting Santa for walking the streets, as if to say, it’s better to stay home.
Tvboy is an Italian based in Barcelona. He started painting in the streets of Milan in 1996.
In 2004 he moved to Barcelona, city where he settled his studio and founded the “Urban Pop Art” movement.
He has displayed his artworks in many different countries both in the street or in art gallery and museum exhibitions.
