ROA is definitely one of my top five street artists whose work can be seen around London. He’s from Belgium, but there’s loads of his work around here.


This one hasn’t been up on the blog yet so thank you to Gutchinlondon who shot this down off of Brick Lane near the Brick Lane Art Gallery and added it to the Flickr pool to share with everyone else. I have always wanted to take a photo of this one, but every time I’m down there, the shutter on the shop it rolled up!

Have any cool London street art shots? Add them to the Flickr pool, pretty please!

London Street Art: Stik People and ROA’s Crane

Turn the corner from Brick Lane onto Hanbury street where one wall recently came to life with the giant image of mother and child and right next to that, you’ll find that Stik has been round there creating some new Stik people.

Stik People

Just above Stik’s pieces, a massive crane adorns the side wall next to an empty lot. This is ROA’s biggest piece yet and took eight hours to complete. One of the most talented artist’s to hit the city’s streets, ROA’s animals come to life with texture and detail. Definitely one of my favourites. He lives in Ghent, Belgium, but quite a bit of his work can be seen in New York, Paris, and of course, London.

Here’s a snapshot I took this weekend:

See some more photos of the crane on this page or check here and here for images of his other work.

If you’re up for a walk over the (hopefully) sunny weekend, here’s a map from Pure Evil to help you track down some more of ROA’s London pieces. If that sounds like too much work, nip in to Pure Evil Gallery to catch his awesome solo show before it ends on Sunday.
