On the Streets

Banksy Vs. Robbo Part… erm

Actual Banksy news follows in the next update, but for the purposes of a complete record, the Robbo “beef” continues…

Not content with reworking all of the Camden Banksys (Parts 1 & 2 and Parts 3 & 4),  Team Robbo continue to vandalise vandalism.  This time one of the very few Banksy placard rats still remaining on the streets of London took a hit, this particular rat is along Farringdon Road.   Vandalog on Twitter picked up on this, and later blogged about it here.

Next up on the hitlist was the Charles Manson Banksy in Archway, London.  You might remember this one originally looked like this

With some Robbo additions, it looks like this

And the latest original Banksy to be reworked is yet another placard rat – documented in its original form here.

With a few original street Banksys still intact dotted across London, it wouldn’t be a huge leap to assume they’ll be getting the Team Robbo treatment in due course too.

What do you think about Team Robbo continuing to rework these Banksys?  Approve?  Would rather these pieces had been left?  Utterly bored by the whole thing?  Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments field below.

  1. Boring, move on please. It’s got a little childish and tired now! We got the point the first few times. Surely if King Robbo if now outta retirement as we are led to believe he should be out there painting new stuff?

  2. A lot less boring than Banksy himself. For every worshipper of him there are 10 people sick of his bloody publicity everywhere and his formulaic sellout “artwork” designed for the lazy and the thick.

    Well done Robbo, keep up the good work.

  4. Banksy is careerist who makes fake soulless street art for the Mcdonald’s generation. London is sick of him and the other sanctimononious condecending twats.

    Well done Robbo!
