Openings: ROA – “Carrion” @ Backwoods Gallery

The Beligum-based ROA, who was recently featured on MOCAtv, has a new exhibition in Melbourne at the Backwoods Gallery entitled Carrion. Fans down under may remember his last showing in Oz in 2010 (covered), but this time the street artist took it up a notch with his installations. Along with his anatomical dissections of native species with his brushstrokes, the art was surrounded by tanks filled with decaying creatures and skeletal remains.

Dubbed the Askew Tankfarm Project, this newest endeavor from New Zealand’s best is located in Auckland near the wharf in the Wynyard Quarter.

Carmichael Gallery recently presented a popup exhibition for Eriberto and Estevan Oriol in the Big Apple.

Showing: Anthony Lister – “Unslung Heroes” @ The Outsiders (London)

After seeding the streets of London and Newcastle with his public art, it was time for his simultaneous openings at The Outsiders locations in both cities.
