About the Artwork

A strong community of healing and growth is reflected in this painting by St. Louis artist Cbabi Bayoc at Siteman Cancer Center at Northwest HealthCare. Located in Florissant, Missouri, the hospital has strong cultural ties to its surrounding area. Bayoc’s painting encourages patients and their families to live a full and active life with symbols of meditation, exercise, and healthy eating.

The details of the piece focus on the multi-faceted nature of all people and an element of spirituality. The balancing stones represent the belief that something larger exists within all of us.

The painting reveals the beauty in various elements coming together to create one structure, and the bees symbolize joining together as a larger community. Bayoc also incorporated the client’s logo to reflect the importance of their place in the community.
