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.

“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).
