Belgian street artist ROA opened his first West Coast solo on Saturday(11.13) @ New Puppy, presented by Thinkspace.
This new gallery work continues the artist’s exploration of the collision between natural and man-made worlds. It is also a comment on the importance of considering the unseen or overlooked – be it animals within the looming urban landscape, or their delicate nature.
The latter is conveyed through an epic wall mural installation and clever pieces which offer dual views of various fauna – an exterior view coupled with a skeletal one or one that reveals the animal’s pulmonary system.
All of this is executed with ROA’s stark, highly detailed black + white signature aesthetic on various ‘found’ canvases which draw attention to urban sprawl and decay.
Highly recommended for all those inspired by the allure of art created in the street.
