One of the many fabulous works at the Outpost Project.
I hope this one stays !

Belgian artist ROA works on large scale, painting black and white animal images on abandoned factories and urban walls. Created using simple means – typically only black and white house paint and black and white spray paint – ROA’s street paintings reflect the aesthetic of naturalistic drawings more than a graffiti sensibility, even when painted on hundred foot-long walls. ROA typically chooses animals based on the mural’s particular location, depicting those that are native to the area; his birds, mice, rats and barnyard animals often find themselves piled atop one another or draped across unusual features of the found surfaces on which he paints. ROA has travelled extensively in recent years, creating works in the streets of New York, Moscow, Madrid, London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Paris, Cologne, Ancona (Italy), Zaragoza (Spain), and Stavanger (Norway) – all in 2010 alone.

    Wow .. had to view that one larger. What a great piece of art. Nice shot Steve.

  • Cheers Michael, glad you like this one. It really is an amazing work, very very huge. It was a bit tricky to capture but the merge worked so I am happy. You should take a run over there before the festival ends. Some very cools stuff and a stroll around the island is always worth it but go early before the under 25s wake up and flood the place around 1pm.
