For the festive season, Banksy just revealed a new artwork in Port Talbot, South Wales. As usual placement is key and the image appears on two sides of a garage depicting a child enjoying snow falling – while the other side reveals it is a fire emitting ash.
Later a video posted on his social media account confirmed the artwork.
Speculation that the piece was a genuine Banksy piece was fuelled when a sketch bearing striking similarities to the latest piece emerged. It appeared in a documentary last year, featuring exchanges between the film director Danny Boyle and Banksy, as they collaborated on an alternative “nativity” play in Bethlehem.
