Fundraiser for comatose Banksy rival King Robbo


    THE graffiti crew surrounding a legendary artist who rose to iconic status when he took on Banksy in a high-profile feud on the Regent’s Canal towpath is holding a fundraising event in his honour.

    King Robbo, described as “blue- blooded royalty” of the London graffiti scene, has long been revered in underground circles.

    But he came to the public’s attention when he appeared out of retirement to embark on a high-profile war of paint with Bristol-born stenciller, Banksy.

    The feud kept all eyes glued to the banks of the Regent’s Canal to see who would have the last word in the battle between the tagging Titans.

    But just as Robbo intended to get his final revenge, tragedy struck.

    He was found close to his home suffering from a life-threatening head injury and was put into an induced coma.

    Now, with his condition failing to improve, friends from his old crew, We Rock Hard, are organising a major fundraising event to draw attention to his plight and help secure his family’s future.

    Graffiti artists, including Eine and pioneering stenciller Blek Le Rat, have donated works to be auctioned off at the King Robbo Fundraiser and Art Auction, which will be held next month.

    DJs, including Artful Dodger, will also give up their time to perform.
