Danish landscape painter decorates nursing home

Nursing homes can often be a sad experience. But not this particular nursing home in the Danish city of Aarhus, where colorful stripes run in the corridors and around corners. The Danish landscape painter Søren Martinsen has made a total decoration of the nursing home.

What a good idea this is, and well thought to give each area of the nursing home its own landscape theme, in this way, the paintings can also serve as guideposts for people with dementia. I’ve mentioned this before, it’s a win-win for both artists and nursing homes, hospitals and any other buildings, used for care and health care: Artists get a showcase, and users of the premises have beautiful and invigorating art to look at. Let’s have more of this!
