Art of the Street: Part III “Animals”

It’s a simple dish. 1 part Art. 1 part Animal. Combine. Allow to cool. Can’t go wrong.

Best served by ROA. Arguably, the king of the street art animal kingdom.  I’ve talked about this guy in previous posts. He’s infamous for his enormous, textured, black and white animals in various states of life and death and decay. These ones are in east London. Both alive.

ROA always gets permission before doing his works. I can understand why. Each piece is a huge investment of time (up to a full day) and he doesn’t want some unenlightened landowner painting over it the very next day. I can just imagine the request: “Excuse me mam, do you mind if I paint a giant rodent on your wall?”

He’s done some stuff in Sydney for a show on Cockatoo Island.
