Bloody WOW !!!!

A Banksy painting depicting a young boy playing with a superhero nurse doll has raised £14.4m for NHS-related charities after being sold at auction.

Game Changer, by the anonymous graffiti artist, appeared in a foyer at Southampton General Hospital during the first wave of the pandemic.

Auction house Christie`s said the price paid for the 1m (3ft) x 1m work was a "world auction record" for a Banksy.

Including a buyer`s premium, the purchaser paid £16.8m.

Proceeds from the sale of the artwork will be used to support health organisations and charities that work with the NHS, including Southampton Hospitals Charity,
Christie`s said it would also be donating a "significant portion" of the buyer`s premium to the same organisations.
