The New Banksy Mural “Season’s Greetings” in Port Talbot, Wales already Under Attack


Season’s greetings from Banksy. Two months after shredding a painting at a London auction, the street artist has resurfaced again. This time in Port Talbot, Wales, where he spray-painted a holiday mural on two sides of a garage. One sides shows a young boy frolicking in what looks like falling snow. The other side makes you realize that the snow is really a fire spewing toxic ash.

According to the BBC, security chased away what one local described as a “drunk halfwit” who tried to tear down the fencing that protects the mural.

Additional security has been drafted in. Banksy’s mural appears to highlight the plague of polluted air and is the artist’s first artwork in Wales. Port Talbot is the site of a major steelworks, which employs around 10% of the town’s population. According to locals, the steelworks generates considerable pollution, affecting their health.

Gary Owen, a 55-year-old former steelworker, revealed that he had written to Banksy via Instagram to ask the artist to create a new mural. The artist never replied but, some months later, the new artwork appeared in Port Talbot.

It has been reported that the actor Michael Sheen, who grew up near Port Talbot, is helping pay security and legal bills to protect the mural.
