Robbo RIP

August 04, 2014

Last week, London-based graffiti legend Robbo passed away. The prolific writer, who rose to prominence in the ‘80s and disappeared off the scene in the early ‘90s, left a large impact on the UK scene. In 2009, Robbo emerged from retirement after the world famous street artist, Banksy painted over but incorporated one of Robbo’s pieces that dated back to 1985. The two had a tit-for-tat feud in various locations that brought international attention and added flames to the fire to the ongoing animosity between street art and graffiti. "Robbo WRH WD PFB - RIP" now adorns the front page of Banksy’s website paying tribute to the artist.
