Game Changer - Banksy - Pop Art Painting - Art Prints
The artwork, which has been donated to a hospital in Southampton, where two health workers have died from coronavirus, depicts a small boy in dungarees playing with action figures. In a poignant gesture, however, Batman and Spiderman lie discarded in a bin in favour of an NHS nurse shown as a super heroine.
The only colour within the piece, which is approximately a metre square, is in the flash of red on Supernurse’s apron, marking the cross of the health service. In a note left with his gift, entitled Game Changer, Banksy expressed his gratitude on behalf of the nation: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its (sic) only black and white.” Banksy, who stencils his “paintings”, shows the nurse wearing a cape, a white apron, and, in a nod to the current pandemic, a mask. She has an arm raised as though she is flyinglike Superman.
Banksy, the world's most famous and most secretive graffiti artist, translates his notorious style into bold prints. Arguably the most controversial street artist in the world. Banksy’s art can impact any location at any given moment.
His identity remains unknown, even after over 20 years of being involved with the graffiti scene. He has worked with many different types of street art media and street art types. His work not only includes many powerful, often controversial images, but they may also be found throughout the Internet as viral images.
