Britain’s most notorious street artist Banksy stands accused of disrespecting a graffiti legend by modernising a 24-year-old work by “King Robbo” in Camden, North London. In old fahioned street war style Robbo responded by obliterating the artist’s work with 3ft high silver letters spelling out his own name. Banksy has apparantly been on an extensive spraying spree of late having painted a series of images last week on walls under Camden Street Bridge, directly behind the British Transport Police building in Camden Town. Robbo however; apparently took exception to the manipulation of his mural, accessible only by water, that had been in place since 1985.
The Central Illustration Agency have recently signed up creatvie talent, the Pirates who they claim are set to ‘turn the world of graffiti and street art on its head’. The team’s ambition is to create the largest most breathtaking creations ever seen and rather than lurking in the shadows and staying anonymous, the Pirates want to be seen everywhere and by everyone. The Pirates have collaborated with some of the greatest brands on the cards and are all set to reclaim the streets, one wall at a time. Working across all mediums and breaking all boundaries, you wont have to look too hard before you see a PIRATES creation. Check out the wall mural film HERE.
