Street artist ROA travels the globe painting giant murals of animals in distress. His paintings feature details that make his subjects appear gruesome and suffering to command the attention of the passer-by. ROA aims to raise awareness of our culture’s relationship with the animals that often suffer as a result of destructive practices like pollution, poaching, and global warming.
It is sometimes difficult to sympathize with social and environmental issues that are not tangible problems in our lives. ROA creates representations of suffering animals on a massive scale in order to increase awareness in communities that may otherwise overlook the problems.
