This […]

Other than the collaboration with Eine, the ever hustling ROA also found time for other projects while in town for Art Basel Week (like the wall you see above). We are always fascinated by the ways the Belgium-based street painter works in unique architectural quirks into his milieu of anatomized animal murals. This piece above is no different with this marine friend of his chopped in half by a wall element with some copious drips emphasizing the point. More detailed photos after the jump…

Having arrived from Miami where he was part of the Wynwood Walls project, Sego wasted no time during his time in L.A. with this large scale rendering of a creature which feels both organic and fantastical. Utilizing a color palette and style that has subtle roots in Mexican art, Sego is making strides in trying to bring attention to the growing and often […]
