An example of the battle is the one piece which is painted next to a canal bridge under a bridge, this painting has been monitered by police alot. This piece started off as a Robbo piece, but Banksy added to it and so forth, eventually it ended up making a fool of banksy as one of his pieces is a man painting "king robbo'. Either way this battle was thought to never end, until not long after the documentary, shortly after Robbo had been promoting a film with his art over seas, he was put into a coma. No one knows how this happened or who was to blame. Maybe this incedent was either sheer coincedence, but others think differently.
I find this story so facinating and never knew things were quite so serious with art and principle. It really shows how competitive the industry is, that even two famous artists have to compete with each other for recognition and pride.
