MARCH 24, 2021     BY: PROVK STAFF

Banksy does it again! It began as a gesture of gratitude. Last year as the global pandemic took hold of our lives, the largest burden falling on the healthcare professionals in our society, Banksy decided to show his gratitude by creating a work of art showing a child playing with a toy of a nurse instead of the discarded "super heroes" of Spiderman and Batman.

This past Tuesday the work of art sold for $22.9 million at Christie's London. With most of the funds earmarked for charity. Banksy's previous record was less than half that amount at auction. Proceeds from the sale will go to organizations that support the National Health Service in the UK.
