Fresh from his exhibit at the New Puppy Gallery in Los Angeles, ROA, the street artist from Belgium, left a few reminders of his visit in southern California.
The two above images were done at Salton Sea, a saline lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault close to the California/Mexico border. The Salton Sea area, sparsely populated, neglected and impoverished, resonates with themes found in ROA’s work.
The above image are two views of a piece left by ROA, located by the LA river. In his usual style, ROA left something anatomical inside the box.
Yes! I’ve saved the biggest for last. The above are 4 images of a mural painted by ROA on a giant wall of Manual Arts High School in South Central Los Angeles, an economically-challenged area of Los Angeles. As you can see it is humongous which befits ROA’s organic flowing style which often features neglected animals indigenous to the area.
