Street artist ROA recently went on a tear in Mexico, after being invited by Gonzalo Alvarez of Mamutt Arte. "I love to integrate the native animals of the country I visit," he says, referring to the armadillo, buzzards, raccoon, anteater, and fighting cock he gave his hosts in Mexico City, and a tiny town in the north called Jamaica. Part naturalist and part social activist, ROA shines his spotlight on the underdogs of the natural world as if to elevate their status among the more prestigious animals of the planet.

  • Just a wee bit scary but I like them a lot.
  • This is wonderful.
  • That is REALLY cool! The use of black is so dark and disturbing, but I can't help liking it. The environment of the art really adds to it as a whole, too. Everything just comes together quite perfectly.
