Play room murals


The children department of the Federal Center of Cardiovascular Surgery in Chelyabinsk is the only institution in the Ural region of Russia that undertakes ground-breaking life saving surgeries for children as young as newborns. For some people from lower-income families it gives the only hope for their child to stay alive.

TopStroke Team creatives Anna Kuvarzina and Olga Krasanova set out to paint the Play Room of the hospital with bright and positive imaginary creatures as a Christmas gift for the little patients.

“Our aim within this brief is to create an atmosphere that would inspire children to make friends with our imaginary characters, play and create their own stories. We think that art can make a positive effect on childrens’ post-recovery and are keen to make the time spent in a hospital a more welcoming experience”
