All City Canvas, Mexico City: Day 3—4

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
We were spread out this past weekend, part of us in Los Angeles, part in New York City for Frieze, and part in Mexico City, where Juxtapoz was a sponsor and lecturer at the All City Canvas Festival. We have gone over the roster, even posted about Escif's memorable mural, but a line-up of Roa, Aryz, Saner, El Mac, Herakut, Sego, Escif, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, and others is not to be missed. Here are some things we saw over the weekend...

All City Canvas, Mexico City: Day 1—2

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
We have our Mexico City colleagues on the scene at the huge Public Art festival, All City Canvas, where an all-world roster of artists (Roa, Escif, Saner, Herakut, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, El Mac, Aryz, and Sego) are painting huge walls around the Mexican capital. After the first few days, some massively good works are being produced. Check out some of the progress shots we were able to capture.

Another artist participating in the Katowice Street Art Festival in Poland is Belgian muralist, Roa.  Using two sections of a building, the artist painted two birds.  One bird is displayed normally, while the other bird’s interior organs and skeletal structure are visible.

Opening: ROA "Hypnagogia" @ Stolenspace, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
They definitely should create an iPhone app that is called 'Where in the World is Roa?" It seems like the man darts the world and leaves evidence of his black and white animals for the world to enjoy. The Belgian street, public, fine, and installation artist just opened a new solo show at Stolenspace in London, and we went to go check it out last night. Photos after the jump . . .

Roa in Perth

Street Art // Friday, November 11, 2011
Roa was in Australia for an exhibition hosted by Form and Skalitzers Gallery titled Paradox.  As usual, the wanderlust artist managed to paint several large-scale walls including this one.  Nice to see the buildings structure cleverly incorporated into the paintings.
