Another Banksy for Brandler

The last work of the enigmatic street artist Banksy, a graffiti of a child on the wall of a garage in Wales (United Kingdom), has been bought for more than 100,000 pounds (113,480 euros), although the figure that could have been superior.

The graffiti occupies two walls, one of them shows a child playing with what appears to be snow and, in the other, it is discovered that the flakes with which he has fun are really ash and smoke from the burning of a container.
In July, dust from steel mills in the British city covered houses, cars and pets, a fact that could have been the inspiration for the British artist.

CHRISTMAS IN ADVANCE

The owner of the garage, the neighbor of the town Ian Lewis, said that the appearance of the work on December 18 in its premises was like “a Christmas in advance.”

However, shortly after he lamented the stress that was causing him to have to guard the representation and media pressure to which he was subjected.

The owner of the Brandler galleries in the English town of Essex, John Brandler, is the one who purchased the piece, although he agreed to keep it in its current location, a garage in the suburban district of Taibach, in the Welsh town of Port Talbot, by a minimum time of two years.

A BRILLIANT BANKSY

The new owner of the vindictive painting, which already owns several works by Banksy, suggested today that he could lend a “five or six” pieces of the creator for public exhibition in Wales and “help” to promote “tourism”.

“This is not the most valuable Banksy I have but it’s definitely the one I’m most proud of, it’s so brilliant, it has an instant and powerful message,” the buyer emphasized.

Banksy placed himself in the global media eye last October, after having one of his works self-destruct after being auctioned for 1.04 million pounds (1.18 million euros) at the London auction house Sotheby’s. (January 2019, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
