Christmas morning, five years ago this very day, Robbo trumped Banksy in the first and most effective riposte in what was to become one of the art world’s most legendary feuds.
King Robbo RIP
“down the canal ina wet suit on Christmas morning ho ho ho” wrote Robbo, not a prolific social media botherer, early Christmas morning 2009 on Flickr.
Banksy’s insult to the the world of graffiti and Robbo in particular was wittily turned on its head to become Banksy’s tribute to Robbo. The full story, noting the date on which I wrote the original coverage, is worth reading here.
Rest In Peace Robbo, you will never be forgotten, particularly on this day
