English graffiti legend ROBBO recently passed away due to complications with an injury suffered in 2011. As a self-proclaimed London king since the 1980s, King ROBBO has had some of the world’s notorious graffiti works on the streets. Probably most notably his epic battle with Bristol stencil artist BANKSY. For decades until his injury ROBBO has put in tremendous amounts of work in the streets by himself and with Team ROBBO and WRH crew. Always a shame to see another writer fall. Respects and condolences to his friends, family and crew. Read a statement from Team ROBBO HERE.

“In April 2010, the installation took over all four storeys of the industrial art-space Bargehouse on the Thames riverside for a period of 10 days.

Brazilian artist Bruno Ribeiro set out to the streets of London to install his new series of street art entitled “Real Life Instagram.” The series has frames cut out like the profile you would see in Instagram and has an opening for a colour filter like that of the app. Very neat idea, Bruno!
