Preview of ROA’s “Dominant Species” at 941Geary

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Primarily known for his detailed portraits of animals, Belgian street artist ROA (read our recent exclusive interview with him here) uses his paintings of local species to ignite a conversation about humans’ interaction with their environment. Highly conscious of how colonialism and the spread of civilization have negatively impacted the Earth, ROA uses his bold, stylized works (that often span entire buildings) to bring the animals that have been pushed out by human expansion back into our consciousness. This Saturday, ROA will debut his solo show, “Dominant Species,” at 941Geary in San Francisco. Inspired by ROA’s recent roadtrip from the East Coast to California, the new body of work in the show meditates on American species and the endangered landscapes they inhabit. Take a look at our sneak peek of his new works and the installation set-up in progress, images courtesy of 941Geary.
