Perhaps art won't heal patients, but Banksy has found a way to bring some comfort to doctors and nurses on the front lines through his art:
A new work by the elusive street artist Banksy, honoring health workers, has been unveiled at a British hospital.
The framed picture, titled ?Game Changer,? depicts a young boy sitting on the floor playing with a nurse superhero toy. Batman and Spiderman action figure toys lie in a wastepaper basket next to the boy.
The nurse figure, complete with a cape and a face mask, wears an apron featuring a red cross ? the only spot of color in the black-and-white work.
The piece has been placed on display in a corridor at Southampton General Hospital in southern England Wednesday.
The artist left a note for hospital workers, saying: ?Thanks for all you?re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if (it?s) only black and white.?
The little things matter.? And if you haven't previously caught it before, there is a fantastic documentary on Banksy's "invasion" of New York from several years ago. I highly recommend watching it.
