Street art has appeared in the town of Port Talbot that has been credited to the artist Ame72. A local rugby club found two pieces on their back doors – one shows a LEGO minifigure cutting around a dollar face emoji and one shows a small LEGO minifigure spraying.
At Taibach rugby club, in Commercial Road, two pieces appeared on two of their back doors on Friday night.
One shows a LEGO minifigure cutting around a dollar face emoji – a half reference to the Port Talbot Banksy having been sold – and the other one is a small Lego man spraying. Nearby, another piece shows a LEGO minifigure wearing an orange hat spraying the text: “’I wish my wife was this dirty”. It is presumed to be a reference to pollution in the area.
ABC Tyres, where the third piece was sprayed, is considering what to do with the piece. “I was stunned when I saw it on Saturday morning – I thought someone had vandalised the door at first,” Tony Evans said to Wales Online. “When I got closer I realised that it was a work of art.
In the same town, works by Banksy have proven a draw for tourists. Art Dealer John Brandler estimates that the Ame72 pieces could sell at auction for between £1,000 and £3,000.
