seikon creates vibrant mural painting on old balneotherapy center in świdnica, poland


 

using the old balneotherapy building center in świdnica city as a large canvas, polish artist seikon has created a colorful mural painting that combines tradition of place with today’s vision of architecture. the public artwork celebrates balneology, a branch in medical sciences that uses natural raw materials for the treatment, prevention and diagnostic of illnesses.

completed after just a week, seikon’s mural painting digs even deeper into the history of balneotherapy. indeed, the evolution of this field is quite long. starting off from a purely empirical knowledge most often used by soothsayers, it has grown into selected and verified physical methods that support clinical medicine. finally, the development has reached the level of creating a separate field that is precisely based on scientific ground. balneology is also known under different — and familiar — names such as medical spa treatment and physiotherapy.
