Okay, so I'm a bit late on this one. Apologies. TOMS, a shoe company in the US, has done something really awesome. First they got over 250,000 people to not wear shoes for a day and thereby rasie awareness about the millions more around the world who don't have that choice and suffer for it. Then they inplimented an in-store deal whereby they'd send a new pair of shoes to those who need them for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased. Check out the follow-up video. Very rad.

So here's the story: King Robbo, an artist operating in London since the 80s, found himself in the middle of a feud after Banksy selfishly painted over his 25-year-old mural. A game of one-upmanship ensued ever since with the pair modifying each other's work at every opportunity. You could say it's a guerilla street art war of sorts. Only now, you don't have to wander the streets to see the battle scars. If you live in London, just head to The Signal Gallery. They're hosting a King Robbo exhibition. I wonder if Banksy will be in attendance?
