Never one to stay put for too long, Roa is now in London where he just completed this mural of piled animals on a very crispyy looking brick wall.

Roa in Panama City

Street Art // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Traveling vagabond muralist, Roa, painted an impressive amount of large animals during a recent visit to Panama City, Panama. We believe these to be some of his best work yet, with thoughtful use of space working with the existing architecture.

Video: Roa in Cambodia

Street Art // Monday, March 25, 2013
    Roa is just about everywhere always. There really is no keeping up with his travels. As part of the ongoing project, ROA and The SK8room traveled to Cambodia to visit Skateistan; a global nonprofit that works with youths from various socioeconomic backgrounds to build trust and skills through skateboarding in order to leave a lasting impression on the country through their combined passions of street art and skateboarding.

Ever the world traveler, ROA made a stop in his native Belgium last week to open Stop Over, an exhibition at Bodson-Emelinckx in Brussels. The show features a ton of new work and installation pieces, featuring ROA's now signature peek-a-boo, hands-on revealing animal anatomy pieces.

Roa and Ever mural in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Street Art // Friday, January 18, 2013
“The people feed communism to the beast” is the title of this collaborative mural between street artists, Roa and Ever, painted in the neighborhood of Palermo Viejo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This striking piece shows the head of Chairman Mao (Ever) being offered to a sea elephant (Roa). An unusual combination of images from two artists with different esthetics, but manages to work well in this particular context.

New Roa in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Street Art // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Just because we are fresh in the new year doesn't mean Belgian-artist, ROA (although we assume he hasn't been home in about 36 months) isn't already hard at work. Our friends at Buenos Aires Street Art just reported and documented ROA's new mural piece in BA, and unlike his personality, he went for a street sloth. Here's to another year of ROA pieces popping up worldwide...

Video: Dominant Species by ROA

Street Art // Friday, November 30, 2012
“I will only paint native species in a country, unless it were relevant to the location, like an abandoned zoo or something” Roa has painted native species large and small around the glob and is the subject of MOCAtv’s newest segment entitled “Dominant Species.” Roa’s thoughts on the world around him, humans relationship with animals, and art, are narrated by a traditional documentary voice.  

Roa paints Native Australian Animals Down Under

Street Art // Monday, November 26, 2012
In Australia for his solo exhibition “Carrion” at Backwoods Gallery, Roa unsurprisingly already painted a few spots with his black and white animals. The native mountain pygmy possum and platypus were both subjects of the artist’s newest walls in Victora. For a possum, it sure looks adorable and huggable.
