Banksy has unveiled a new artwork in Southampton General Hospital depicting a nurse as a superhero.
The piece, titled Game Changer, was made as a thank you to staff for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.
Following its unveiling, the enigmatic street artist left a note for hospital workers, which read: “I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its only black and white.”
The artwork specifically shows a boy playing with a nurse superhero toy, while figures of famous costumed heroes Batman and Spiderman lie in a rubbish bin.
Paula Head, chief executive of University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Here at Southampton, our hospital family has been directly impacted with the tragic loss of much loved and respected members of staff and friends.
"The fact that Banksy has chosen us to recognise the outstanding contribution everyone in and with the NHS is making, in unprecedented times, is a huge honour."
This piece of artwork comes just weeks after Banksy shared his latest at-home project that certainly got people talking!
It may not be everyone's home decor cup of tea, but he's certainly putting a smile on peoples faces!
