All around the world, people have been expressing their gratitude to healthcare workers with a nightly round of applause. In the UK, people are taking that support one step further, creating beautiful street murals thanking the National Health Service (NHS) workers for their bravery and dedication during the pandemic.
Both professional and amateur artists are putting their talents to good use, covering entire walls or sections of streets with colorful tributes. Artist Rachel List was responsible for several pieces of art in Pontefract, England. She depicted NHS workers as resilient heroes, painting images of nurses with angel wings and boxing gloves, and symbolic Superman associations.
