Tony Peralta spent the weekend painting a nurse’s picture on a wall near the hospital emergency room in Inwood.

He is known for his series of paintings of iconic Latina women with their hair in rolls.

“I just hope that when people pass by it does them good,” said Peralta. and they say thank you, but really the purpose of this thing is thank you – thank you to all the healthcare workers. “

Peralta sells prints and t-shirts with the image on its website, “The Peralta Project”.

Part of the proceeds will go to the mayor’s COVID-19 relief fund.
