“Season’s Greetings”: New Banksy Artwork Discovered In The City Of Port Talbot, South Wales

Wales has been Banksyed – with the world famous street artist revealing that he is indeed behind a new piece of graffiti which appeared on the side of a garage overnight. Speculation that the anonymous artist was behind the mural in Port Talbot, South Wales, had been mounting, with residents convinced it was his.

Banksy has now confirmed it with a video on Instagram showing close-ups of the finished piece, which is seemingly a comment on the town’s industrial heritage.

On one side of the building, the artwork depicts a child playing in what appears to be falling snow. However, the other side tells a different story, revealing it is in fact ash being emitted from a skip fire. Soundtracked by the children’s song Little Snowflake, the video shows the artwork before panning to show the steelworks which loom over the town.

Residents in Port Talbot, South Wales, are calling for the council to protect the graffiti, saying it will benefit the area.
