Despite the lockdown, Banksy has remained active, using his art and platform to celebrate the ‘superhero medical workers’ and address systemic racism.

In his fifth artwork released since the lockdown began in March, Banksy strikes the London tube with some new works and words of encouragement: “I get lockdown. But I get up again.”

The message is a play on the chorus from the hit song “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. On Instagram—the artist’s only official account—he also encourages people to wear masks, saying: “If you don’t mask – you don’t get.”
