Life Is A Playground / University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust
Commissioned by University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, Dave was required to create a series of artworks for the new Second Entrance and corridor of Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. This series of work is titled 'Life is a Playground' and aims to create a vivid and entertaining visual journey that leads visitors through the building and provides a dynamic and welcoming environment for patients.
Dave developed the designs following workshops with patients and meetings with staff at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and the hospital’s Youth Council. The scenes of adventure and play are animated by a host of animal characters that reappear at intervals and serve as familiar faces throughout the space. Companionship, collaboration and discovery are common themes that run throughout the artworks, encouraging young audiences to construct their own narratives and garner positive messages.
The artworks were funded by Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal which supports the creation of a child-friendly environment with integrated artworks to enhance the redevelopment of Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
