Banksy's work in the Regent's Canal ignited a war between the Bristol artist and King Robbo. Back in 1985, King Robbo installed his work titled Robbo Incorporated on a wall within Regent's Canal in Camden, London. The work stood until 2009, where Banksy allegedly covered a majority of the work with a piece of his own. The piece featured a workman pasting white wallpaper. Robbo, who was outraged, returned on Christmas Day, 2009 to create the word Robbo in silver letters. This would lead to a back and forth battle between Robbo and Banksy at the site, which is only accessible by boat. One of Robbo's works featured a gravestone that read, "R.I.P. Banksy's career." This back and forth turf war went viral online with campaigns of "Team Robbo" targeting future Banksy works. Outside of London, Banksy's works have been defaced or altered in some capacity by fans and fellow graffiti writers pledging loyalty to King Robbo.
Despite not calling himself an artist, Banksy has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, combined with Banksy stencil style. Due to the shroud of secrecy surrounding his real identity and his subversive character, Banksy has achieved somewhat of a cult following with his street art from some of the younger age group within the stenciling community. Tagging walls and billboards in the dark of night, sneaking around with a secret identity in urban areas. Leaving his political mark on the world for all to enjoy for free.
The infamous UK guerrilla artist, Banksy, is hitting the streets hard in London, Bristol, Australia, the USA, and just about everywhere in between. It‰۪s not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, it‰۪s his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksy‰۪s controversial work requires people to think deeply about the issues he‰۪s attempting to bring to light.
