QuoteA new work by the elusive street artist Banksy, honoring health workers, has been unveiled at a British hospital.The framed picture, titled "Game Changer," depicts a young boy sitting on the floor playing with a nurse superhero toy. Batman and Spiderman action figure toys lie in a wastepaper basket next to the boy.The nurse figure, complete with a cape and a face mask, wears an apron featuring a red cross — the only spot of color in the black-and-white work. The piece was placed on display in a corridor at Southampton General Hospital in southern England on Wednesday [May 6].[. . .]The artwork will be auctioned at a later date to raise money for national health charities, a spokeswoman for Banksy said.[Link to full article.]
Quote from: Icarus on May 13, 2020, 12:10:20 AMBanksy is marvelously skilled with a pencil or pen or whatever the instrument might be. He /She has a keen sense of humor as well as pictorial admiration for those women and men who are trying to keep us alive. Observe that I have capitalized two pronouns out of respect for that artist.
QuoteBanksy has returned to the London Underground with a piece encouraging people to wear a face mask.A video posted on his Instagram page shows a man, believed to be the enigmatic artist, disguised as a professional cleaner.He can been seen ordering passengers away as he gets to work, stencilling rats around the inside of a carriage.Transport for London (TfL) said the art was removed "some days ago" in line with its "strict anti-graffiti policy".The work, called If You Don't Mask, You Don't Get, features a number of rats in pandemic-inspired poses and wearing face masks.One rodent stencilled on the Circle Line train appears to be sneezing, while another is shown spraying anti-bacterial gel.The artist's name is also daubed across the driver's door of a train.[Continues . . .]
