New Huge Roa Hedgehog in London

Famous Belgian muralist Roa recently put up a new huge hedgehog on Chance Street in East-London’s Shoreditch! Roa, who visited the British capital again for his Hypnagogia show at Stolenspace Gallery, created in that way a new pilgrim shrine for new and old fans of his renown portrayals of large scale urban wildlife, hand painted in his distinctive black and white style.

After spending several weeks in Australia, this new Roa hedgehog is the first mural he painted in Europe for a long time and I’m pretty sure it will be a good reason for all the Olympics tourists to visit Shoreditch…

Roa is an artist deeply preoccupied with the significance of the creative process. Working conceptually on each project, he nurtures a dynamic energy which evolves during the restricted time-frame. His method is consistent. Arriving in a location he adapts to his habitat, allowing inspiration to flood from buildings and objects and literally ‘waking up’ to the realities surrounding him. Foraging for the recycled found-objects he seeks becomes a harder task in London, adding a new dimension and highlighting physical process and interaction in this completed body of work.
