Belgian street artist Roa is famous for the amazingly detailed animal murals that he’s painted all over Europe and the U.S. Here are some photos we shot of some of his pieces in East London during a tour with Street Art London.
Roa hit the headlines in the U.K. at the end of 2010 after his fans and residents in East London launched a campaign to protect his mural of a 3.65m rabbit. The local council wanted to remove it despite the building’s owners’ fight to keep it. Fortunately people power triumphed and Hackney Council backed down in the dispute.
Here are some more photos we took this week of artworks by Roa in London.
