‘Game Changer’ — New Banksy Piece Unveiled at Hospital to Thank Nurses and Doctors

The AP:

The piece has been placed on display in a corridor at Southampton General Hospital in southern > 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 only black and white.”

Health officials said it was a “massive boost to morale” for everyone at the hospital, which has seen at least two members of staff die after contracting the new coronavirus.

Pitch perfect. I love the dithered close up texture of the details. Without question, in my mind, Banksy is the most important painter of our time.
