While last heard from him last month (here), Banksy is back with an outstanding new piece.

Titled “Painting for Saints” and dubbed “Game Changer”, Banksy took to his Instagram to reveal this tribute to the NHS and healthcare workers. As usual with the British artist, the piece is right on point, it shows a young boy playing with one of his new NHS heroes. The piece was created as a thank you to all those who work with and for the NHS and UHS hospital.

Banksy left a note for hospital workers, saying: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its only black and white.”

The original piece is currently on temporary display at the University Hospital of Southampton.

Take a look below for visuals on “Painting for Saints” and check back with us soon for more updates from Banksy.
