King Robbo, street artist from London, passed away on July 31st, 2014 from health complications related to a head injury believed to be the result of an accidental fall in 2011 in which he was placed in an induced coma.

King Robbo was famous for his works of graffiti in the city of London where he was one of the original graffiti artists, and also his feud with the street artist Banksy, in which the two often painted over each others works.
