Artists have turned London children's hospital into a colorful placeBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/artists-have-turned-london-childrens-hospital-into-a-colorful-place
The offices and hallways, the sounds and smells of the hospital make this place terrifying for children. But the hospital shouldn't instill fear. The British art organization Vital Arts, responsible for introducing art to British hospitals, has brought together 15 artists to transform the interior of the Royal Children's Hospital in London into an amazing and colorful place.
Despite the fact that the hospital has to be constantly cleaned, artists were still able to use vinyl, ceramics, wood, and even carpets to bring these hospital walls to life. Each artist has created his own unique style.
1. Intensive care unit decorated by artist Thord Boontje.
2. The artist's work includes animals and flowers on the walls. Only the doors and medical automatic doors remained intact. Large drawings have many details and each time you can find something new in them.
3. Traumatology and Gastroenterology from Morag Myerscough.
4. The artist tried to depict all the images that he kept in memory for many years and splashed them out in his work. Thus, elements of circus, art deco, Asian culture, Victorian architecture appeared on the walls and this is not a complete list. Initially, the artist transferred everything to paper in the form of sketches, and then to the walls.
5. The goal was to make the wards enjoyable for young patients and their parents, warm and welcoming.
6. Hematology from Donna Wilson.
7. Donna's goal was to make the hospital different from regular hospitals. She wanted patients, parents, and nurses to feel calm and relaxed, and that the wall designs were uplifting.
8. The reaction from children and parents was amazing.
9. Waiting room from Chris Houghton.
10. Chris decided to draw animals, lions, fish, etc. in each room.
11. Vinyl was used in the corridors to create life-size images of animals.
12. Department of Pulmonology from Miller Goodman.
13. Wood is a traditional warm material that has been and continues to be used to make toys. And very often the tree brings back pleasant memories of childhood. The combination of bright vinyl colors and wooden characters is very popular with children.
