Though much of Banksy’s work relies on dark humor and cultural criticism, this joker clearly has a soft side, too. Instead of his usual guerrilla-style graffiti, this work of art, titled Game Changer, arrived neatly framed at Southampton General Hospital, where it will hang as a reminder for the busy nurses and doctors of how inspirational their work and sacrifice are.
A note from the artist reads: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if it’s only black and white.”
In the future, the piece will be put on public display before being auctioned off to raise money for British National Health Service charities.
