ROA and An Orphaned Bear in Rome

ROA and An Orphaned Bear in Rome

Entirely within the character of Street Artist ROA, his new piece in Rome addresses the underlying rift between man and nature. The urban naturalist is known for his depictions and portraits of creatures who share the earth with us, often endangered or otherwise misused at the hand of man. In town for his solo show, “Suovetaurilla”, at the Dorothy Circus Gallery, ROA painted this particular bear kid who was famously orphaned this summer.

The case of his mother attacking a human hunting mushrooms in the forests of Trentino and open public deliberations about the ethics of killing or capturing her was openly discussed and debated in grocery stores, beauty parlors, and halls of government. It even sparked an online petition drive that gathered more than 120,000 signatures to protect her from being punished while behaving like a bear.

Sadly Daniza was accidentally killed by too much anesthesia in the process of subduing her, effectively ending the debate about her fate. ROA paints here a timid orphan baby bear holding a dart similar to the one used for anesthesia.  Using his work to advocate awareness is not the first thing that comes to most people’s mind, but ROA once again subtly shows his own method of activism is very effective.

Poles in Italy: Natalia Rak and Etam Cru at Memorie Urbane 2014

Poles in Italy: Natalia Rak and Etam Cru at Memorie Urbane 2014

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Memorie-Urban-2014-banner

The Polish duo Sainer and Betz, who together are named ETAM CRU, have just completed walls at Memorie Urbane along with their countrywoman Natalia Rak, who comes from Lodz.  Together the illustration style of their fantastic realism is characteristic of a current trend in muralism and these twenty-somethings all continue to stretch the imagination with saturated color, pleasing imagery, and a technical flair that lends itself to children’s story books.

A quick look at the current progress for the 2014 version of Memorie Urbane in Italy today with new works by Seth and Eime in Terracina and Ernest Zacharevic in Arce. The festival, which runs April through June, is still receiving artists every week and will continue placing them on walls that are chosen with the artists and the context in mind.

Ernest Zacharevic “Toy Mafia” in Gaeta, Italy

Ernest Zacharevic “Toy Mafia” in Gaeta, Italy

You’ll have to laugh when you first see the new double wall installation just completed by Ernest Zacharevic for the Memorie Urbane Festival. Known for his light hearted hand rendered site-specific illustrations of kids at play, Zacharevic positions two boys around the corner from one another ready to blast each other to pieces with water guns. Hopefully Gaeta appreciates the humor.

Etnik and Millo at Memorie Urbane Festival 2014

Etnik and Millo at Memorie Urbane Festival 2014

Here are a handful of in-progress shots at Memorie Urbane 2014 featuring Etnik and Millo at work on their site-specific pieces. The festival appears to be a departure from standard “urban art” aerosol jams because of its sensitivity to the location and historical considerations in the siting of artists – which makes this more of an edifying mural program.

Etnik is an Italian/Swede artist who calls Italy home and began his outdoor art career with graffiti. Now he has moved from the letter forms associated with traditional graffiti style to an examination of geometric forms interacting in a multi-dimensional field.

Millo completed his massive wall mid April – a dream like system of symbols and icons; highways and cities and a sliced self portrait floating amidst and above it all. The Mesagne born native studied architecture and illustrates the innerworkings of his mind to “reveal the transience of human existence, suspended somewhere between what we know and what is hidden inside us,” he writes on his website.

Martin Whatson, David De La Mano, Pablo Herrero and E1000 at Memorie Urbane Festival 2014

Memorie Urbane Festival 2014 in Gaeta, Italy is in full swing. Begun principally as a way to promote tourism by David Rossillo, the mural festival is carefully curated to recognize the common history, traditions and the natural landscape of Gaeta and Terracina rather than simply promoting an international roster of Street Artists. Loosely translated as “urban memories” the site specific installations are meant to recall how the memory of a place is an essential starting point for what evolves from it; a dialogue between past and present, between art and public spaces.

Photographers Lorenzo Gallitto and Giorgio Base of Blind Eye Factory are documenting the works as they are going up and here share their photos with BSA readers for our global audience to enjoy.
