This exhibition covers a 3.500 square meter area and features 122 portraits in large formats. The portraits will be hung in a network of "streets" - resembling walls of an imaginary city.

The artist are: Conor Harrington (UK), ROA (Belgium), Borondo (Spain), DALeast (China), Maya Hayuk (US) and HuskMitNavn (DK).

I was finally meeting up with Roa again, it's been way too long since I last saw him. So I'm glad our travel plans suited each other this time around. We had an amazing week and I'm pleased to share my comprehensive documentation of his new large-scale contextual mural, a gigantic Tyrannosaurus skeleton, which he painted during four days on a factory building in Bromölla, Sweden for Ifö Center.

Whichever country ROA is in (We are fairly sure he has visited them all by now), he will paint the native animal in a larger than life size and always in black and white. This adorable creature was painted in the streets of Brazil.

A few months ago, an assorted animal pile up that included a rabbit, fox, horse and beaver, was painted by Roa on a local school in Schadekgasse, Vienna. The wall happened with the help of Inoperable Gallery and the financial support of the local government office Kunst im Öffentlichen Raum.
