Robbo vs Banksy - Wall Street Journal Graffiti Article

Robbo vs Banksy - Wall Street Journal
It may surprise you, but yes, I read the Wall Street Journal on a daily basis. If you want to make money, you have to know what's happening in the financial world. On the cover page in yesterday's issue of the Wall Street Journal, an article focused on none other than graffiti. The Journal sells 2.02 millions copies every day and is the best selling newspaper in the US. The editors agree that an article focusing on graffiti deserves front page placement.

The article focuses on the rivalry between Robbo and Banksy. Banksy altered a Robbo piece that was in existence for 25 years. Coming out of a 16 year retirement, Robbo went back and reclaimed the spot. He took it further and altered many of Banksy's other works.

You can read the entire article entitled A Game of Tag Breaks Out Between London's Graffiti Elite on the Wall Street Journal Website. Thanks to Jaber for the link.
