Paco was commissioned by ConnectRN to create a piece of artwork and the brief was “a love letter to nurses who are under constant stress and pressure.”

In his own words…

“We’ve heard a lot recently about “essential” workers and our “heroes” working in health care. While this language is meant to contextualise and elevate certain jobs and workers, it can also have the effect of flattening them. None of us are going through this easily or with a cape on. I’ve worked with @connectnapp to hopefully shine a light on our nurses without pretending they are superhuman. I wanted to highlight the lives of nurses off the job. You never know who is behind a uniform and you will almost always be surprised.”
