Banksy Stained Window

 

Stained Window by Banksy. Created with the help of students from the City of Angels school in Los Angeles.

Below are Ten Things by banksy which we think are worth seeing.

Banksy vs Robbo

Banksy Vs Robbo – Regents Canal, Camden, London.

Grafitti legend Robbo painted an original piece here in 1985 called Robbo Incorporated which was one of the longest surviving street pieces in london. That was until Banksy broke an unwritten graffiti code and painted over the top of it. This caused a lot of tension on both sides and the start of tit for tat improvements to each others works began. There has reportedly been a long running feud since the pair met at a party in the 90’s and robbo allegedly slapped Banksy after claiming of having never heard of robbo when introduced. After Banksy painted over the piece fans took sides and became either Team Banksy or Team Robbo. Banksy has said that the piece had been defaced multiple times before he painted over it. Robbo never got the chance to have the last word though as he was allegedly attacked in the street and put into a coma after receiving head injuries in April 2011.
