Oh, Banksy you clever little counter-culture urban artist, you. It seems that the British guerrilla artist’s latest work (a white-washer seemingly painting over a graffiti mural, with just a peak of the original coming through) has caused a little urban art-world controversy. The piece Banksy so cleverly stenciled over is actually by London graffiti pioneer Robbo and dates back to 1985 and thus begins an urban art fight of Banksy vs Robbo.
The next step in the Banksy vs Robbo war was to cover up the remaining part of the original mural (but incorporate Banksy’s white-washer) and to introduce a large, new tag emblazoned with the words, “King Robbo.” In Banksy vs Robbo, the next move is Banksy’s.
