A young talented Belgian artist Roa (b. 1976 in Ghent, Belgium) is a recognized in the world master of creative street art. And among his latest creations is this beautiful mural on multistory House in Johannesburg, in South Africa. Before creating such a picturesque mural, ROA has carefully prepared for it. In particular, he studied a lot of “live” pictures of animals to reproduce their natural and rather peaceful poses. Besides, the artist usually paints wild/farm animals and birds that are native to the local area. As a rule, he uses a minimal color pallet like black, white and red. In addition, he uses vibrant colors depicting flesh and/or internal systems within the animals and birds. So, Roa travels around the world and leaves his creations in various cities, decorating sad gray constructions – walls, fences, pipes, with picturesque images. Indeed, such artists as Roa make our world a more beautiful place to live.
