ROA in Berlin

Photos: Luna Park via The Street Spot

Sadly, the exhibition is over if you find yourself in Berlin; however, you can still enjoy the photos.


[PRESS RELEASE via Skalitzers]Skalitzers Contemporary Art is proud to present the first solo show in Berlin by internationally acclaimed artist ROA.

A modern-day naturalist, ROA moves between cities, observing and documenting the creatures that inhabit the fringes of human society. Famous for his large-scale depictions of animals on city walls around the world, ROA exposes the natural beauty in the cycle of life and death.

Transit focuses on the movement in this cycle - processes of decay, discovery, re-invention, and life born out of death. Employing the same concept with his materials as with the life he depicts, ROA's latest body of works are the culmination of a 10 day passage in Berlin, exposing the neglected creatures of his recent travels against the discarded materials and energy of abandoned Berlin.
