The Welsh owner of the garage that Banksy transformed his into latest canvas over Christmas has decided to sell the mural after all. Despite being helped by the Hollywood star Michael Sheen, who grew up in Port Talbot and donated thousands of dollars to protect the artwork, the steelworker Ian Lewis found the cost and responsibility for maintaining the work too much. He sold it to gallerist John Bandler for a reported six-figure sum. He says Season’s Greetings will remain in Port Talbot for two or three years, but might be moved after that. (Guardian)
