Our superheroes: Waterford artist pays spectacular tribute in the sand to frontline workers
A Waterford artist has paid an incredible tribute to frontline workers in the sand while in self-isolation.
Sean Corcoran used the beach at Kilmurrin Cove on the Copper Coast as his canvass to draw a giant “thank you” in the sand, replacing the Superman symbol’s ‘S’ with a medical cross.
Sean released aerial footage of his artwork on Facebook, saying: “THANK YOU to all the doctors, nurses and hospital staff for their amazing bravery at this difficult time.
“The dedication that you are all showing is extraordinary. You are our heroes.”
Sean has been in self-isolation for the past 10 days since returning from the Llano Environmental Art Festival in Llano, Texas.
“I would just like to say that I’m very fortunate to live at the heart of a beautiful region called The Copper Coast in Waterford, Ireland. I created this sand art on Kilmurrin Cove which is 1.5km from our front door here at The Art Hand. I’m personally on day 10 of a self quarantine having returned recently from a project in the States. Stay safe everyone,” said Sean.
The talented Waterford artist urged everyone to “play our part” and support frontline staff “by acting responsibly”.
Sean added: “We need to protect ourselves, our families, our friends and the wider community. We need to stop the spread of this virus. We need to be informed and we need to take this seriously.”
