Roa-Avanguardie-Festival-Rome-1

Street art sensation Roa is now in Italy where he just finished this huge mural for the Avanguardie Urbane Roma Street Art Festival 2014 curated by Stefano S. Antonelli.
ROA’s ” work is often accompanied by an environmental narrative that highlights the ruthless, man-made world animals are forced to live in and his “Jumping wolf” is a very good example of this.
The new mural  is a 30 meters high and was painted on a private building in the Testaccio area of Rome intended to celebrate the symbol of modern Rome through the image of a wolf that clearly feels the oppression produced by the small space it is placed in and is ready to break free at any moment.
