"This is pretty much to honor all of the healthcare professionals that have been putting their lives on the line day in, day out, for the past 10 months that's been just a nightmare and within that nightmare, we try to find some sort of hope and that's the title of this piece is 'You Bring Hope'."

It depicts four nurses of different ethnicities

Artist Samir Arghandwall is especially keen

to make their facial expressions as realistic as possible

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARTIST, SAMIR ARGHANDWALL, ALSO KNOWN AS SAMIR EVOL, SAYING:

"The expressions, because I can only imagine how exhausted they are dealing with this day in, day out, so I just wanted to capture the emotion. // We kind of depict them as superheroes because they do put their lives on the line for us and they not only risk their lives but their loved ones, day in, day out, so they're sort of kind of like superheroes."
