The extraordinarily gifted Belgian artist Roa has recently shared his talents and passion for the animal kingdom with us outdoors in Jersey City and indoors at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The following images were captured this past Saturday near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, not far from Mana Contemporary where Roa created his works for Metazoa, currently on exhibit at Jonathan LeVine:

While Roa’s huge, wondrous black and white murals continue to grace massive walls in New York City, one of his smaller pieces can be seen mounted onto the walls of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in Manhattan’s Chelsea gallery district. Hybrid Thinking a group exhibition curated by Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective, features Roa’s signature animals painted on multiple panels. We were riveted.
