Banksy to Doctors and Nurses: Thank You

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.
