A HARLOW street art business has painted a colourful, inspirational mural at The Princess Alexandra Hospital to commemorate the COVID-19 pandemic.
Marc Silver, CEO and founder of professional street art company MurWalls, has donated the artwork to the hospital in thanks for the hard work and dedication of all of its people in the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19).
The mural (pictured – photo credit: Gavin Vickers) features a rainbow to symbolise the COVID-19 pandemic and flowers as a representation of hope. It is located outside the Alexandra restaurant, at the rear of the site.
MurWalls artist Szilvia Noel worked on the mural throughout Saturday (22 August), before unveiling the creation as dusk approached.
Marc said: “When the pandemic hit the UK, we all felt very hopeless and wanted to find ways in which we could help the community. As a Harlow resident, our offer to paint a mural for our local hospital felt like a small gesture, but something we hoped could put a smile on the faces of the amazing staff working tirelessly throughout.
“We worked together with PAHT in order to obtain the image to achieve this goal. We are very proud of what we have done and have already seen the positive effect it has had on the staff and patients whom have passed by.
