The painting by the secretive street artist was unveiled at University Hospital Southampton, in south England, on Wednesday (May 6).

The image shows a boy - drawn in monochrome - kneeling beside a litter bin containing Batman and Spiderman toys.

The boy instead plays with a doll dressed in a face mask and nurse's uniform with a red cross - the only colour in the painting - on the front.
