Old Street billboard takeover for CALM, We worked on the project with agency BMB (Beattie McGuinness Bungay), with support from JCDecaux. BMB chose to use graffiti art as a way to raise awareness around the issues because of its notions of self-expression.
The end of 2009 saw some substantial graf beef initiated by artist Banksy as he went over a quarter-century piece from fellow British artist Robbo. In the months after the event, a few shots were fired from the Robbo camp including support from a wide range of personalities. But in recent times, there has been word of Robbo in a deteriorating state of health. With that, a new work has surfaced in a similar vein to Robbo’s original. Unsure of the reasoning behind this sudden reappearance, take it for what you will.
