Friendly Forest for St. George’s Hospital Children’s Emergency Department

As 2012 comes to a close I wanted to show you a very special project that we managed to fit in this year. I was asked to design a wall mural for the corridor of the Children’s Emergency Department of St George’s Hospital, London.

The work had to be uplifting for kids of all ages with things going on at lots of different height levels. The corridor changes in width, and leads from the reception to different parts of the hospital. I thought it would be nice if the wall was lined with curious looking trees. Within the trees various creatures live, a smiling cat, a family of hand-drawn koalas, a lime green snail and even a bear in boots!

Here are some pictures of the installation taking place. The images were made from sticky wall vinyl by a Bradford based company called New Vision (www.new-vision.co.uk).

Is that Cyril Squirrel-Fox?

Many Thanks to Belinda Harward, who is the Arts Director at St Georges and is in charge of promoting well being. The commission was developed in partnership with Arts St George’s and the project was funded the St George’s Hospital Charity.

I hope it brings a smile to a few of the faces that pass through the corridor in often stressful circumstances.
