Banksy mural in Port Talbot won't be missed, says garage owner ahead of artwork's relocation


The move has been arranged by Essex-based art dealer John Brandler, 63, who purchased the piece from garage owner Ian Lewis for a “six-figure sum” in January.

“It’s been life changing,” Mr Lewis said, according to the BBC, reflecting on the past six months. “It’s been a real mix; it’s been a pleasure, it’s been a pain, it’s been exciting, it’s been stressful.

“Whether you are for or against the steel works here – and personally I worked there for 28 years – I think people from Port Talbot feel passionate about the Banksy,” Mr Lewis added.

“I don’t think I’ll miss it, but I probably will pop in and visit it. I’m pretty proud of the outcome to be honest with you.”
