In New York for Rochester’s Wall/Therapy festival and the Wooster Collective’s 10th anniversary show at Jonathan Levine Gallery, the globetrotting Belgian artist Roa spent a couple of days relaxing in Brooklyn. Wednesday night he completed this coyote piece on the exterior of the newly relocated Pandemic Gallery.
Having painted large-scale walls in the UK, in several cities across the US, Mexico, Germany, and Denmark to name but a few of places he’s been just this year, Roa’s had an incredibly prolific year. His latest show, Decomposition, just opened at Vienna’s Inoperable Gallery last week and word has it a trip to Australia is in the works. As luck would have it, my recent work trip to Berlin allowed me the opportunity to catch the closing day of Roa’s Transit show at Skalitzers. He also painted a monstrous outdoor wall in the Kjosk lot down the street from the gallery (you can see photos of him in action on Just’s blog).
Below are just a few impressions from the show featuring some his signature interactive pieces. There are more images from Transit over on Skalitzers’ site.
