Banksy vs. Robbo Continued…

Around the 2009 holiday season, Banksy put up some new work at the Regent’s Canal in the UK. As you may recall, one of the pieces (seen above) involved painting over a fellow artist’s work – a sprayer by the name of King Robbo – which had stood unharmed since 1985. In response, King Robbo covered up Banksy’s work with 3 foot high silver letters spelling out his name.

Babelgum has created an interesting video (seen above) offering their insight into the battle of the two artists that is worth a look.

Original King Robbo piece:
