Banksy artwork in Port Talbot sold to buyer for six figure sum

The Banksy artwork in Port Talbot has been sold to a buyer for a six figure sum after the original owner Ian Lewis accepted an offer.

The artwork appeared on the garage in Taibach before Christmas, with Banksy confirming that the work was his own on his Instagram page.

The image shows a child with what appears to be snow falling on him but the other side reveals a fire in a skip emitting ash.

The buyer, John Brandler, from Essex, spent the day speaking to the Welsh Assembly, as well as Neath Port Talbot Council to discuss the logistics about moving the artwork to another part of the town.

Mr Brandler told ITV News he wants to use the centrepiece to bring in some other Banksy artwork from his collection to show in the town centre as part of an exhibition.
