Graffiti Show: Roa in Paris

Yesterday I got an e-mail by Samantha Longhi. She is the founder of “Stencil History X” and the author of the corresponding stencil art book and informed me about the upcoming exhibition by famous graffiti artist Roa in Paris!

Roa’s urban art shows are very rare and this is his first solo exhibition in Paris. After distinguished journeys in the streets of New York, London, Berlin and Warsaw in 2009, he now takes possession of the French capital.

“Roa opens a door to a twilight zone by settling in the heart of the city wandering animals such as crows, hares and rats that live close to humans, in relative agreement. He portrayed them in static positions, waiting or sleeping with a disquieting realism in black and white.”
(press release)

His detailed, monochrome animal spray-paintings are well-known around the globe. Every time he creates a new mural art somewhere in the world, it’s recognized by the majority of the urban art movement. For that reason, I think the show at the Parisian Itinerrance Gallery will be a great success!

Opening is on February 4th and the show runs until February 28th. Have fun and send me photos!
