Banksy pays tribute to ‘superhero’ nurses in new piece donated to a medical center in Southampton. Another work by the British street artist, Banksy portraying a nurse as a hero is being shown in an emergency clinic.
The piece, entitled ‘Game Changer’, has been hung in a hall at University Hospital Southampton.
It shows a young man playing with a medical attendant toy which serves as a super hero, while figures of Batman and Spiderman are disposed in a wastebasket.
The nurse with her outstretched arms in flight, wears a top and a face cover. The red cross logo on her cover is the main bit of shading in any case high contrast artwork.
The artist left a note with the piece saying: “A debt of gratitude is in order for everything you’re doing. I trust this light up the spot up somewhat, regardless of whether it’s just clearly.”
Paula Head, CEO of University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust said that “the way that Banksy has picked us to perceive the remarkable commitment everybody in and with the NHS is making, in exceptional occasions, is a colossal respect.”
“It will be a huge lift to the spirit of everyone who works and is minded at our medical hospital,” she included.
