The universe may seem off the rails for now, but life goes on and the artists never stop creating.

In 1996, English artist Tracey Emin confined herself in a limited space in gallery with nothing but plenty of canvas and paints. Fast forward to today, toymaker Obvious Plant released Things Are Bad Man merch, of which 50% of profits will be contributed to charity; whilst Psychotherapist-artist Johan Deckmann's self-help guides continue to keep us sane amidst the uncalm.
