We already touched on the event here for another artist, but now we have some photos to share from the anatomically obsessed street artist as he painted stacked containers at one of the country’s biggest music festivals. Take a look at an interview he gave here and check out some of the other artists’ efforts here. Photos via BA Street […]

As per his style, many of his pieces have interactive aspects and deceptive visual props like mirrors which were enjoyed by all as they walked through the gallery. Photo credit: Paul Whitehouse.

Showing through this Saturday (January 4th) at the White Walls project space in San Francisco is a solo from ROA. Presented in a format seen previously from the Belgium-based street artist, the work was interposed throughout the gallery set up like the workspace of a field biologist full of drawings, tools, and evidence of field research. Of course, the imagery presented featured his signature dissections, anatomical details, and interactive qualities. Discuss ROA here.

Take a look at other murals you may have missed from Mr. B earlier in the month here. Other notable walls come from ABOVE – Canada, Mark Jenkins – Germany, Mark Dean Veca – Los […]

Other notable videos: An interview with Anthony Lister at Wynwood Miami last May. ROA, Phlegm and others recreate famous Baroque paintings. RuPaul drives […]
