Park Life signed limited edition lithograph print by Chris Orr made especially for the NHS 70th Anniversary Portfolio. Lithograph on Somerset Velvet 300gsm
"One of the greatest fascilities of London are its parks. In celebrating 70 years of the NHS my thoughts are towards keeping people healthy and in the case of people who are sick, promoting recovery. Parks can play an important part. Inside the hospital, whether it is the A&E, or on the wards I would like people to be thinking about the world around them and how they can live healthier and happier lives.
Park Life, based loosely on Battersea Park, just by where I live, celebrates all the things people can do, running, cricket, canoodling, just dreaming and scoffing picnics. Inside the picture there is a lot to explore. Try and find the dog stealing a tennis ball, or the heron admiring the Barbara Hepworth sculpture. I want my picture to be an invitation to engage in Park Life. The title borrows from Blur's 1994 song." - Chris Orr
