Drove past this morning. If the `artists` had any talent they would change the pic into something funny or doctor the image into having a pop at the artist, turn the gun into a didgeridoo or the bag into a golfish in a see thru bag, add a silly hat, a spirting cock - ANYTHING but black spray piant as if done by somone having a stroke.
The last letters of Robbo have ended up on another wall and not visible to pedestrians. looks like the work of a 2 year old.

The thing to remember is that this hasn't been painted over 'by' Robbo (or by the looks of it anyone associated with him who've pranked other Banksy pieces), but by some clearly talentless kids with absolutely no style of their own who've added the 'team robbo' bit to give themselves some justification.
By the look of what they've done they couldn't exactly call themselves writers. It's the worst tag i've ever seen...

Think saying not done by street artists but a bunch of public school boys. No talent etc Sort of hooray henry types. Notice bottles of beer sort of held like petrol bombs. Eg drunk rioters having fun but no idea
If your going to make a point. Make it. What makes me think this is a wonderful piece of art? Nothing. Like playing the piano badly(when you are an accomplished musician-Tommy Cooper for instance), it takes talent. Not sure someone is having fun with this litter but its by no Master of Art.
1. It maybe a poor image, poorly executed but at least it's having a pop at something that needs to be done (obviously this is a forum for buying and selling urban art so politics, the history of street art and expression aren't necessarily ideal bed fellows)
2. Banksy pieces do not have a divine right to go untouched, whether something good or bad takes its place that's the street for you.
