Banksy set to raise over £3m for the NHS when his nurse tribute artwork is sold
STREET artist Banksy is set to raise more than £3million for the NHS when his tribute to frontline nursing staff is sold.
Titled Game Changer, it features a child who has binned superhero dolls of Spider-Man and Batman and is playing with a nurse doll instead.
The anonymous graffiti artist painted the image during the pandemic’s first wave.
A print of the artwork will stay on display at Southampton Hospital, where it first appeared, while the original will go under the hammer at Christie’s in London on March 23.
The pre-sale estimate is £2.5million to £3.5million.
Katherine Arnold, of Christie’s, said: “Game Changer is a universal tribute to all those on the front line of this crisis.
“It pays tribute to those who have demonstrated true leadership, the staff of our vital NHS.”
