As you probably know I'm fascinated by street art, the culture and it's evolution. I often photograph street art, have published a book of a project about Stik and I have exhibited works derived from photographs of street art. Yesterday an infamous street artist, King Robbo passed away. He had been ill for a long time in fact since he had a fall in 2011 and was subsequently in a coma for many months, he never recovered. Channel 4 ran a documentary on the so called 'wars' between Robbo and Banksy in 2011. The two images below are from 2010 when the 'wars' were, I guess, at their height.
Originally Banksy's 'Anywhere' at Archway from 2004 this is it after a team Robbo visit in March 2010
Another another Banksy after a team Robbo visit. This one in Camden in May 2010.
RIP King Robbo
