CORONA LISA by Matilda
Emulsion & Enamel Paint on Plywood
110cm x 107cm - external size
A friend of Comme Ca Art’s daughter has created a fantastic painting during lockdown and it’s for sale with all profits going to the artist’s Homeless Charity of choice, Room at the Inn - The Y Project.
The work came about, shortly after lockdown, homeschooling Matilda. She has always loved graffiti and asked if she could do her own as part of an art class. Matilda and her parents had seen a copy of the Mona Lisa at the Liverpool Walker Art Gallery and that’s where the idea arose. Matilda’s version has unfortunately caught the virus!
Using materials found lying around at home, the artwork started to take shape.
The frame is made from Victorian floorboards and some plywood painted with household white emulsion. With a little bit of mum and dad help, Matilda made stencils from pictures printed on A4 paper which she then sprayed with a small tin of black enamel paint found in the shed and some acrylic paints from an art set.
The finished art was then photographed and uploaded to her school website.
Matilda would like the money to go to a homeless charity. She says homeless people are open to getting corona virus and because everyone is at home, homeless people have no money or food.
The painting is for sale for £100, excluding delivery. Not only is this a fantastic work of art, the message behind the painting and Matilda’s request for the painting’s sale to go to a charity which means so much to her has melted our hearts. Let’s find the painting a home which in turn will go towards helping the homeless.

Room at the Inn - The Y Project
Room at the Inn - The Y Project is the new charity that is taking over services from the old Warrington YMCA. The charity provides daytime services to homeless and vulnerable people and a 10 bedded night shelter. Their ethos is to help people to access the services they need to go forward with their lives. The charity's dedicated staff and volunteers support people through very difficult times and help them to find a better future. Not everyone will be able to move forward because of the challenges that they have. They are loved and supported anyway.
