Urban Street Art: ROA Tears Up Mexico (11 pieces)


Street artist ROA recently went on a tear in Mexico, after being invited by Gonzalo Alvarez of Mamutt Arte. “I love to integrate the native animals of the country I visit,” he says, referring to the armadillo, buzzards, raccoon, anteater, and fighting cock he gave his hosts in Mexico City, and a tiny town in the north called Jamaica. Part naturalist and part social activist, ROA shines his spotlight on the underdogs of the natural world as if to elevate their status among the more prestigious animals of the planet.
