Tsk, tsk, tsk

Oh, Banksy, Banksy, Banksy. For shame.
We all remember who I’m talking about, yeah? If not, go here and here for a quick refresher course.
It appears our friend here has started a bit of a graffiti war, with another old school graffiti legend Robbo.
The two are rivals, so I guess Banksy just wanted to annoy him a bit? Meh, probably. He went and painted over one of Robbo’s most famous works, which has been around since 1985. Yeah, that’s not cool, even if what he painted was kinda clever Of course, as expected, Robbo painted over it again, this time using Banksy’s work to further his own. Sweet.

Banky's 'customisation'

Robbo's revenge


So, I’m guessing this war of theirs isn’t quite over yet, though it definitely looks like Robbo is winning. Stay tuned!
