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.

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?

Roa paints a Narwhal Örebro, Sweden

Street Art // Monday, July 08, 2013
The large mythical narwhal is the subject of Roa’s most recent mural in Örebro, Sweden for the OpenART 2013. Its fin appears to be snagged by a hook with the rope wrapped around its tale. The Inuit people have been harvesting narwals for over a thousand years for meat and Ivory which still continues to this day under certain hunting regualtaions.
