AMC 3 The Kidney Dialysis Ward at the Amsterdam Children's Hospital - "The Greatness of The Small"

Emiliano Campobello has a special passion for creating murals and paintings for healing spaces. In 2003, he was commissioned to paint three areas for The Amsterdam Children's Hospital (Emma Kinderziekenhuis): a day-clinic waiting room, the Emergency Room waiting area, and the Kidney Dialysis Ward. It was while painting the Kidney Dialysis ward that he fully realized the healing qualities of the work they were making. The self-esteem of the child patients there grew, the care-givers were happier, and visitors had a more positive attitude as they entered.  The artwork he has created for children's hospitals, pediatricians, childrens dental clinics is some of the work he is most proud of.

Not only was the quality of your work exceptional, but also your love for what you do and your sincere concern for the children who would be the beneficiaries of your work was truly admirable. The character and compassion you demonstrated made working with you a pleasure- from the planning phase all the way to completion.The masterpiece you worked so hard on has now graced our walls for three months, and we don’t have to guess what the patients think of it- they tell us daily how much they love it. You have transformed a potentially daunting waiting room into a peaceful and inspiring retreat-like space, and we are so grateful (for) what we experience every time we open the front door and see your mural- a deep, contented pleasure, not just for ourselves, but for our patients as well. You have been professional, consistent, passionate and exceptional artists and people- and we want to thank you for all you’ve done and who you are.
