Sadly it appears the graffiti Artist King Robbo is seriously injured :

According to Today's London Evening standard:

" Doctors put the artist, who goes under the name of King Robbo, in an induced coma after he was found badly injured near his home in Holloway days before an exhibition of his work was due to open in Shoreditch.

The artist, who has been involved in a feud with Bristol-based Banksy since 2009, has been released from intensive care but his condition is not thought to be improving. Police have not launched a criminal investigation.

Members of Robbo's former graffiti "crew", We Rock Hard, are organizing a fundraising event next month to help pay for his medical care. Other artists have donated works to be auctioned.

Crew members say Banksy has not responded to an invitation to make a donation.

One said: "We wouldn't say no to him making a donation and it could be an opportunity to put out an outstretched hand. I have got nothing personal against the guy and neither has Robbo."

Here above see part of the King Robbo vs Banksy tag feud down by the canal in Camden......... Banksy started it by incorporating a small bit of 20 year old graffiti by Robbo into a funny Banksy piece with an image of a workman appearing to be putting up graffiti wall paper........... This was then altered by King Robbo so that the Banksy worker appeared to be writing the name of King Robbo as you see above....... then tit for tat changes were made to many more Banksy artwork down by the Camden Canal with the two artists dissing each other.

The King Robbo Fundraiser and Art Auction will take place on September 4 between 1pm and midnight at Cargo in Rivington Street, Shoreditch. The Standard said Bansky was unavailable for comment.
