Philip Stanton, professor of the Degree in Design and coordinator of the Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication Techniques at EINA, with the collaboration of Titanlux paintings, is developing a large format mural colourist in the lobby of Guinardó / Hospital de Sant Pau station on line 4 of the Barcelona subway.

This artistic intervention is a tribute to the health workers who have taken care of us during these days of pandemic caused by the Covid-19 and it is also dedicated to the city of Barcelona and its spirit of overcoming and resilience.

This project, a mural of approximately 60 square meters painted with traditional methods, has the participation of students of the Design Degree: Laia Badenas Martí, Gerard Cortina Vila, Guillem García Romera, Claudia Gonzalez Rodiel, Marina Mas Puig, Pau Morató Sebastià, Aura Olivan Gurt and Javier Perez Criado.

The work, which is expected to be completed in mid-July, conveys concepts such as travel, the passage of time, the seasons of the year, as well as symbols that evoke nature. At the same time, the piece presents a double image game. In the foreground, clear references to Barcelona, to the icons of the city, to the TMB transports that contrast with the dreamlike images in the background.
