After the homage appeared on a street in Bristol for Valentine’s Day, and the photo shared on Instagram portraying his peculiar interpretation of smarworking, Banksy is back with a drawing of about one square meter appeared near the emergency room of the Southampton hospital in the UK.
The work depicts a child playing with some puppets: he puts aside Batman and Spiderman and prefers, instead, a doll with the appearance of a nurse, with her mask and cloak. Game changer, this the title of the work, is a tribute to doctors and the British health service, the Nhs, committed to treating those infected by the coronavirus. The anonymous artist, after sharing the work on his Instagram profile, left a note to the hospital staff: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if it’s only black and white.”
