LONDON.- The entire world has suffered appalling disease and loss this year. Amid such suffering, people need some joy – so it’s pertinent that a series of unique artworks and design interventions by leading artist Yinka Ilori are being installed in the last few days of this unprecedented year at St Stephen's Centre, part of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to bring cheer and lift the mood for patients and staff.

“Over the years I have worked on a number of art commissions but this one is important, now more than ever in view of what is happening in today’s world. I hope it brings joy, peace and calmness into people’s lives today, forever and in times of need,” explains Ilori.

Ilori aims to provide messages of positivity and inspiration during these challenging times in his practice, which fuses his British and Nigerian heritage to tell new stories in contemporary design. Known for his use of bold patterns and vibrant colours to create contemporary designs and architectural installations, the West London-based artist has developed a new and cohesive visual identity at the hospital to support patient, staff, and visitor wellbeing at what can often be a time of high stress.

Ilori’s installations are part of the CW+ Arts in Health programme, which has been at the forefront of the global arts in health movement for more than a quarter of a century. CW+ is the official charity of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

“The artworks designed by Yinka Ilori are very much in keeping with our overall philosophy at CW+ to make hospital areas as aesthetically pleasing and calm as possible,” says Trystan Hawkins, CW+ Patient Environment Director. “These art and design works will survive long beyond the end of COVID-19, enhancing patient, visitor and staff experience.”
