ROA Hedgehog pops up in Shoreditch

Roa Street Art in East London

On Sunday ROA put up a great new mural on Chance Street in Shoreditch to mark his last night in London before jetting off to paint in Poland.  This piece adds to his growing repoitoire of animals around London and caps off an extended stay that saw him put up one more street piece a few weeks back (see below), but more significantly put together a fantastic installation based gallery show entitled Hypnagogia.

Hypnagogia opened last Thursday and is spread over two spaces – one at Stolen Space gallery and another at a pop-up space towards the end of the Brick Lane – both are worth checking out, particularly the pop-up…

ROA is one of the most prolific and most talented street artists on the planet and he has visited London numerous times and left many of his giant animals across it’s walls and shutters.  Check out Street Art London’s collection of his work accross London HERE and then consider that ROA is doing the same in many other cities and countries all around the World!

Reminds me of “Spiney Norman” from an old Python skit.

Wow, the hedgehog’s giant! It’s unbelievable how detailed ROA’s pieces can be. I saw the meerkats he’s done in Chicago and I pray that he would decorate Toronto’s walls. Although I love street art in Toronto, the city’s quite lacking in animal motifs. The only animal I know about is Toban Black’s Raven. However, I consider the work to be nothing exceptional. London’s probably the most authentic place for street art. Love it!!!

Have a look at the “Rat” piece he did on the back/side of The Bell pub on Middlesex Street. Not many people know about it.

These wall paintings are amazing! The size and detail of them is unbelievable, I can’t imagine how long these took him to do. I have visited the website and I can’t believe how many he has done in so many different countries! They should do canvas’ and posters, I would definitely buy one!
