We’ve posted about Roa’s street art before, and now he has hit Gambia. Working with Wide Open Walls (W.O.W.), a project organized by Lawrence Williams, Roa traveled to the village of Kubuneh in Gambia, Africa. W.O.W.’s objective is to promote Gambia as a tourist destination while also presenting an astounding art installation that “WOW’s” the world.
I love how Roa has incorporated local animals into these pieces while still keeping his style.
With the release of the new Banksy film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, the world seems to be abuzz with an interest in street art. Belgian street artist Roa has been around for awhile now, but his work seems to be getting a lot more plugs of late.
This piece in Shoreditch, London is just one of many pieces that are popping up around the UK and Europe. Looked at from one angle you see a furry rabbit and from the other the creature’s insides.
Roa has also done this cool ‘Rabbit Decay’ piece that you can view in the time lapse video below.
If you’re in NYC you can check out Roa’s show at Factory Fresh until the end of May.
