Illustrator and designer Nick Deakin took to the walls of 14 rooms at the eye department at Sheffield Children’s Hospital in the UK, aiming to add some spunk to the unit’s build environment. The colorful illustrated works transport patients from outer space to the park and the beach. Sometimes, they even serve a practical purpose, helping providers evaluate eye function.
Many Deakin’s artworks are the latest in a series commissioned for the hospital by Artfelt, an art-in-health branch of the Children’s Hospital Charity and form part of a wider plan to transform its patient spaces using art and design.
