ROA and a Half-Eaten Carcass in Chicago

Belgian Street Artist and painter ROA continues his USA Summer 2012 tour and his next stop after New York was Chicago last week. Hosted by the folks at Pawn Works Gallery, ROA was invited to participate in their ongoing outdoor project “Art in Public Places” in the Pilsen neighborhood.

ROA’s  unsentimental fascination with animals goes well beyond the wild realm to give the urban fauna spotlight on public walls. He reprised this bit of visual trickery that we first remember him doing in Miami last year – an engaging image goes very wrong when you turn the corner.  It demonstrates the duality of nature and one we shouldn’t get freaked out by, but a carcass is still kind of gross, right?

The project continues to bring new artists in conjunction with the Mexican Museum of Fine Art and The Chicago Urban Art Society.
