We’re excited to announce that we will be presenting Belgian-born artist ROA‘s debut west coast solo show on Sat, Nov. 13th. This will be a special pop-up event presented by Thinkspace and taking place at New Puppy Gallery just outside of downtown Los Angeles.

ROA has been extremely busy of late having visited New York this past June for a show with Factory Fresh in Brooklyn and traveling all over Europe the past several months. So far this summer he's put up amazing pieces at Nuart (Stavanger, Norway), Infart (Bassano del Grappa, Italy), Critica Urbana (Madrid, Spain), Secret Garden Festival (London, England), Popup! (Ancona, Italy) and Stroke.03 (Berlin, Germany). On top of that he did a special piece while in the UK that ended up on the cover of a recent issue of VNA. ROA's organic animals, huge both in presentation and reputation, will soon take over the streets of LA as well as the walls of New Puppy Gallery, reminding the city's art lovers that there is indeed nature all around us, even in the middle of the City of Angels. HIs street work brings to mind the natural world before it was covered in skyscrapers and highways. ROA's stark black and white illustrations are as much home on the walls of galleries as they are on the walls of abandoned factories. The work acts as an ardent cry to arms to not ignore the nature that surrounds us all and that the cities of the world continues to push further and further away... and closer and closer to extinction.

ROA's work has been exhibited in London, Berlin, Warsaw, Brooklyn, Amsterdam, and Paris and this exhibit will mark his first solo show on the west coast of the States.
