Nuart 2013: The Final Video

Street Art // Wednesday, November 13, 2013
For the past 3 years, we have been invited to Stavanger, Norway to participate in the NuArt Festival, where an international roster of street and public artists convene on the west coast of the country to create a yearly project that combines art, city planning, and good old-fashioned street intervention. This year, the roster included David Choe, Vhils, Faith47, ROA, Martha Cooper, M-City, Aiko, Hush, DALeast, and many more, and today, the good people behind NuArt released a video recap of this year's festival... 

Roa in Panama City

Street Art // Friday, November 08, 2013
Roa has a gift with integrating his animals to fit the architecture of a buildings and surrounding environments. They often appear like they were meant to be there. This one in Panama City idoes exactly that and brings new life to the decayed exterior.

A horse and armadillo in San paulo

Street Art // Thursday, September 26, 2013
An armadillo the same size as a horse is a rare sight. Roa paints his animals to be larger than life, each with their own individual personalities. This scene photographed in San Paulo is great in so many ways!

Nuart 2013: The Final Shots

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 16, 2013
Here is a final look at some of the street works, murals, and beer tunnel installations that help complete the story of Nuart 2013 and our week in Stavanger, Norway. Aiko, David Choe, ROA, Faith47, and Vhils all had standout pieces, but we loved seeing the works and meeting DALeast, Martin Whatson, Strok, Dot Dot Dot, Ernest Zacharevic, and all the artists who put work up all week... 

New Roa Mural in Lodz, Poland

Street Art // Monday, September 09, 2013
Participating in the Fundacja Urban Forms Festival, the always-traveling vagabond artist, Roa, painted three ferrets (we think?) protecting their nest of eggs. One of the aspects of Roa’s work we admire most is his ability to utilize space to incorporate his animals. This particular piece is a perfect example of thoughtful placement.

Nuart 2013: Street Pieces, Part 1

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 07, 2013
As we showed you yesterday, we have been in Stavanger, Norway this week for the Nuart Festival, and as you probably know by now, each year the artists complete murals and street pieces around the town. Here is a look at the first series of street pieces, from David Choe, Martin Whatson, Vhils, ROA, Strok, Hush, and Ernest Zacharevic. More to come...

Snails mating in Portugal by Roa

Street Art // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
The streets of Lagos, Portugal now have the odd, but strangely endearing painting of two snails mating courtesy of the drifting artist, Roa. The animal-activist-artist was invited by the ARTURb to attend a residency, so we are expecting to see more work pop up around Lagos soon.

Roa paints decomposing coyote in Brooklyn

Street Art // Friday, August 16, 2013
After we just saw Roa in Rochester, NY for Wall Therapy, he is now in Brooklyn where he just finished painting a decomposing coyote on the side of Pandemic Gallery. No stranger to making use of awkward spaces, Roa made great use here by going above the door and made the animals tail extend on to the rolldown.

Another wall from Roa at Wall Therapy

Street Art // Wednesday, August 07, 2013
After we left Rochester, NY last week while covering Wall Therapy, Roa stuck around a little longer than anyone else and painted another piece of a bird with an egg. Created on an older building, the wildlife supporter adds yet another beautifully painted animal to the landscape.

Where's Roa?

Street Art // Friday, July 19, 2013
Previously “Where’s Waldo?” changed appropriately to “Where’s Roa?” The traveling muralist is currently in Malaga, Spain, where he completed yet another large monochromatic mural with his lovable animals as subjects.
