Roa - The Art Week Murals - Miami

Belgian artist Roa.....

Roa's niche has become animals and rodents, usually in black and white, some with an almost pen and ink style, they often include themes like life, death or even life after death, sometimes exposing skeletons and internal organs giving viewers a double take on reality. 

A family of rodents plays on the wall on NW 1st Place near NW 21st Avenue.

Roa painted this huge Florida manatee mural for Miami Art Week. Working worldwide Roa often paints the animals native to the country. 

101 NE 28 St Wynwood Miami

Looking at this mural from the other direction on the street, the manatee became dissected. It was a jaw dropping moment seeing this trickery live shortly after it was painted.

Like many young aspiring street artists he grew up spraying tags and over time developed his healthy obsessions painting the animal kingdom. Its what sets his murals apart, his use of muted tones, visual trickery and infinite subject detail.
