Everyone has heard of Banksy, maybe not everyone has heard of Robbo. Robbo was in his words the original and a pioneer of the street art game. He tagged and painted his way around London in the 80’s before it was cool or indeed profitable to do so. After a while he retired, he made no money out of it and felt it was for the younger man.
A young Banksy met Robbo and they had a bit of set to and Robbo claims to have given him a slap.
Fast forward a few years and the grudge comes back when Banksy paints over an iconic Robbo piece with a workman putting up wall paper. Cue a long running, slightly petty, rather amusing, visually interesting tete a tete.
