The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation approached me to create an artwork depicting Edward Jenner’s tale of the first smallpox vaccine, which was/is actually the first vaccine ever (as vacca is latin for cow, Jenner used the cowpox virus to immunise against smallpox).
While researching the subject the enormity of the challenge dawned upon me. Small pox killed over 500 million people through-out history, from the nobility down to the poorest of the poor, not one person was exempt from it’s horrific grasp.
