Look how 15 artists transformed London Children’s Hospital to make it more colourful and “happy”

February 10, 2015

There’s a lot of heartbreak in hospitals, and particularly in kids’ wards, but one organisation is literally adding colour and brightness to the lives of sick kids.

Vital Arts, a British arts organisation in charge of introducing art to Britain’s hospitals, had 15 artists collaborate to turn the interior of London Royal Children’s Hospital into as fun and colorful a place as a hospital can be.

Despite being limited by the fact that hospital environments need to be easy to clean, the artists were still able to use vinyl, ceramics, wood and even rugs to liven up these hospitals, each approaching the wards they decorated with their own unique style.
