Streets: Roa Rooftop in London

AM met up with Roa when he was in London a couple of weeks ago and we watched him in action painting a large wall from a Hoxton rooftop.

Starting at 5pm on the opening day and lasting a little past 8pm the next night, “Art Jam” is a culmination of the all the participating artist’s hard work. Like in previous years, the blank canvas was tinkered with by a few brave artists during the initial dinner, but by the time midnight rolled around, one could clearly see […]
