‘King’ Robbo 484 – Rest In Peace – 1969 – 2014
Robbo died today (Thursday 31st July 2014) after a long battle struggling to recover from massive ‘unexplained’ head injuries. He had been in a persistent vegetative state following an induced coma since April 2011.
‘King’ Robbo 484
23rd October 1969 – 31st July 2014
Rest In Peace
For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings;
How some have been deposed; some slain in war,
Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed…
Shakespeare Richard II
I hope that the Channel 4 documentary Graffiti Wars, which told his story, will be screened again in honour of the tragic death of this King of British grassroots contemporary art and global graffiti culture.
Our thoughts are with his family and crew.
