A sad day in the graffiti word as the prolific street/graffiti artist Robbo has sadly passed away due to health complications . I did not know him personally but he was a big influence to a number of the writers in the London scene , being renowned for painting London’s earliest pieces in Camden, feuding with Banksy & breaking news coverage by painting the famous ‘ Merry Christmas train of 88‘ . Thoughts go out to his close family & friends .
