BANKSY

Watch this space for NEW Activist Art

The street artist BANKSY, elusive as usual, slipped in and hung an homage to healthcare workers (entitled "Game Changers") on the wall of a British hospital. According to Artnet.com “The painting, an uncharacteristic medium for the street artist, shows a young boy playing with a superhero doll dressed as a nurse, complete with a mask and apron bearing the Red Cross symbol, and a cape fluttering behind her. Next to the child, a wastebasket holds castoffs, including Spider–Man and Batman dolls — outdated versions of superheroes in our new pandemic-stricken world.” The piece will be sold at auction (with the artist’s permission) to raise funds for the National Health Service.
