Backwoods Gallery Presents "Carrion": a new exhibition by Roa

Street Art // Sunday, November 25, 2012
If not yet, soon, Roa will have painted every animal known to exist in just about every city in the world. Well, that may be a stretch, but Roa appears to be everywhere, painting everything, all the time. Down in Australia, the artist will be showing new work at Backwoods Gallery opening November 30, 2012. We suggest you go. Do it.

Teaser: All City Canvas Mexico City Video

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 22, 2012
Next Monday, October 29th, we are set to premier the documentary filmed during the work made for one of 2012's best street art festivals, All City Canvas Mexico City. We were lucky enough to be in Mexico City for the majority of the festival, and were able to see importrant and historical districts of the city transformed by some of the best talents in contemporary muralism and street art. As part of our teasing of the video, we look back at the work of Escif, Interesni Kazki, and ROA. More in the coming days...

Video: ROA's Plane for the Boneyard Project

Street Art // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Earlier this year, Juxtapoz took a trip to Tucson, Arizona to document a number of international artists painting massive disused Military airplanes and cockpits for a project entitled The Boneyard Project. A variation of eclectic styles adorned each piece of aviation and an opening reception displaying the planes was held at the Pima Art and Space Museum. ROA’s plane was painted alone much after all the events and everyone had left, surely a tranquil desert experience for the artist.

I ART JOBURG: PART 3

Street Art // Friday, October 05, 2012
One thing you notice walking the streets of Johannesburg is everything is hand painted, with vinyl signs having little presence. Espo started another mural that is twice as big as the previous “Stay Up” mural and while they worked away, we walked around. Local artist Faith 47 happened to be putting up work around the corner from where were staying, so we briefly chatted with her.

I ART JOBURG: PART 2

Street Art // Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Often when traveling to unknown lands, in this case Johannesburg, one can create certain expectations in their head and discover the exact opposite. After a few days running around, are initial skepticism of Joburg has been revoked and anything but negative. Aside from countless memorable adventures from our hospitable hosts and curators of the event, /ANDPEOPLE, we have witnessed two massive murals by ESPO and ROA come to completion.

After a sleepless 15 hour flight, we anxiously arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa for the I ART JOBURG project presented by adidas Originals and curated by /ANDPEOPLE. This month long project has brought five international and local artists to create large-scale public murals in the bustling streets surrounding the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg’s central art district.

After ROA placed one of our favorite street pieces of the year (do we rank things like this now?) in Chicago, the Belgian artist, although we assume he hasn't seen his own bed in years, is back in San Francisco for an installation and exhibition at 941 Geary. Dominant Species is his latest body of work created directly after his road trip from the East to the West of America.
