ROA’s first UK solo show opens tomorrow night in at the Pure Evil Gallery in London.
Known for his unique portrayal of large scale urban wildlife, his black and white images have become a fixture around Shoreditch.
“ROA started painting abandoned buildings and warehouses in the isolated industrial outskirts of his hometown – Ghent, Belgium. Fixating on the animals he found there; the wildlife became the central subject matter of his work, inspired by their clever ability to adapt into scavengers in order to survive. He used the dilapidated, coarse interiors and exteriors of the unyielding landscape as a canvas to portray his large-scale creatures.”
It should be a great exhibit, so make sure to go check it out before it closes May 2nd.
