King Robbo was a world renown British street artist and painter. King Robbo was born in England in the year 1969.

King Robbo was renown for painting a flower created of many peace signs. King Robbo was one of Banksy’s biggest rivalries. Banksy and the artist met at a bar. Banksy told King Robbo he wasn’t aware of his art and so the two began a life long feud.

In this clip we check out some works by King Robbo and Banksy:

The artist flourished during the 1980’s and 1990’s at the start of the graffiti and subway art movement in England. Robbo painted his first train in 1985.

One result of the rivalry with Banksy was a renewal of inerest in creating street and graffiti art by King Robbo. Its sad that he passed during a time when street art was rapidly gaining more worldwide recognition and his body of work as an artist was being appreciated more.
