The Artist Painters
The Foundation collaborates with approximately twenty independent professional artist painters, with multiple origins and from rich and varied artistic training.
They are selected for their skills, their personal qualities, and their ability to work in teams. They show a great sense of listening, sharing and contact. Their commitment to the Foundation requires humility and devotion.
Before working on their first project, the artists are trained in the graphic and artistic approach applied to the medical cause.
To respond to an expectation of three-dimensional decorations in a psychiatric unit, the Paint a Smile Foundation has called upon a designer, interested in finding new ways to express his creativity.
Phillipe Cramer, a Swiss designer based in Geneva, has met this challenge by creating a setting in favour of the Belle Idée day hospital, a psychiatric unit of the HUG.
