Streets: Banksy – “Season’s Greeting” (Port Talbot, Wales)

Making a statement during the holiday season in his own unique way, Banksy has created a new piece in  South Wales. Featuring a boy enjoying what appear to be snowflakes while trying to catch some on his tongue, the mural turns dark when you look around the corner and realize it’s actually ash from a burning dumpster, not snow. Surely a commentary on Port Talbot (ne of the most polluted areas in the UK) where the piece is located, a video (seen below) from the […]
