ROA? You tell me.....


When Aimee and I were in the city a few days ago we were walking down Roe St. to cross the Horseshoe Bridge that would take us from Northbridge into the city centre. Aimee casually said 'oh by the way Mum I think there might be another one of the ROA murals along here' sure enough tucked away in a carpark (as is his usual preference) was this mural of a herd of wild horses disappearing into the horizon (headless!). At first I wasn't 100% sure it was a ROA, because of the writing but if you look at this cool short video you can see his style does deviate now and then to include different aspects into his works. What do you think a ROA or a wannabe!!. Have a happy and safe Thursday.....

  1. Wow! What a fascinating mural! I love the horses! I'm not familiar with the artist, but I love what I've seen of his work! Terrific capture, Grace, as always!

  2. This one I like, but most of his other stuff leaves me cold. Does that suggest it's someone else? Who knows.

  5. It is a very dramatic artistic representation. I've heard of the headless horseman but not of headless horses! As some others have already suggested, I cannot determine if this is legit or not...

  8. This takes "street art" to a whole new level... If it is a copy, I hope that more will adapt this great style... love it!

  14. Not sure but I like the work- nice to see such subtle art rather than some of the bold and brash street art I often see locally.

  15. whether it's an authentic ROA or not, it's still a marvelous thing to find in a car park, isn't it?

  19. This is fantastic, but I don't think it's ROA's. It's just too pretty, if you know what I mean. :-)
