ROA x Hypnagogia

26 Apr

Thanks to Stolen Space and ROA for the video.

Belgium artist ROA is renowned for his unique portrayal of large scale urban wildlife, disquietly cohabiting city streets, hand painted in his distinctive black and white style. ROA has become famous from painting animals on derelict buildings, shutters & walls literally all over the world. He has also exhibited to much acclaim all over the world and was also included in the MOCA exhibition ‘Art In The Streets’ in LA.

‘Hypnagogia’ will be a 2 space exhibition, featuring installation work & originals on found objects. As well as outdoor work across east London. To coincide with this show opening will also be the launch of ROA’s first artist book ‘Roa: ‘An Introduction To Animal Representation’ by Mammal Press.

Etymologically derived from the Greek words hypnos, “sleep” and agogos, “leading”, the title of the show refers to the transitional state between sleeping and awake. This grey area exists within every consciousness and is said to act as a bridge to other realities. ROA explores the ‘interstate’ with his portrayals of sleeping animals, whilst quietly around us the world awakens from a long winter, and the creatures he depicts experience a period of seasonal transition.
