Doctors have repeatedly saved Odessa from various epidemics. Plague, cholera, now covid; at the cost of their own lives, health, they are always the first to come face to face with diseases. We wanted to connect Odessa culture, doctors and the value of their work in one project. This is how the Odessa Atlantes became doctors who support the planet on their shoulders and save our lives.

The artists chose the Jewish hospital for a reason; there are two departments for patients with Covid. On this mural Alexey worked in collaboration with Avgustina Zemlyanskaya. In the future, Aleksey Shkurat intends to bring to life a series of similar art objects with other Odessa artists. Artists use environmentally friendly paints, after the completion of the work, the mural will be covered with varnish, which will protect it from wind and rain.

On the eve of Earth Day, I would like to remind the townspeople that in the last year it is on the shoulders of doctors that our planet is held. I would like to express my gratitude and support to them on behalf of the citizens of Odessa.
