I finally got a chance to see Roa's newest wall yesterday in Bethnal Green. Remember when I stopped by on Monday and the art was blocked by a moving van? Well, I went back yesterday on my way to a pub outing with some friends, and fortunately I had a clearer view. (That white van on the right is blocking the pig's snout, but oh well.)
Steph at Little London Observationist recently wrote a piece about meeting Roa, and it includes photos of him working on this wall. It's interesting to see the piece in progress. You can get a sense of how he applies the paint.
I'm counting ten animals: rat, pig, squirrel, fox, rabbit, cow (?) and four birds. Am I missing anything?
If you want to check out some other Roa works in both London and New York, I wrote about them here, here and here.
