ROA.. brushtail possum.



 Belgium street artist/muralist ROA 'generally paints animals and birds that are native to the area  being painted' quietly but passionately 'repopulating the city-scape with animals as a way to have them re-enter the contemporary landscape that was once theirs.' By painting the brushtail possum here it is reintroduced to its native environment. Spotted on Palmerston Street in North Perth the brushtail possum was a 'percent for art' piece commissioned for the The Bottleyard complex, the mural highlighting the conservation of both the surrounding native animals and of the local bottle making history. It's always a treat to come across a ROA that I haven't seen before, check out more of his incroyable work here. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  7. Love this. My SIL who lives in Sydney had a number of possums in their roof at one stage and had them professionally removed. She has not mentioned them for some tome now. Hope all is well Diane

  17. I really like this piece of art but I don't think the bottle is actually the possum's natural environment.... or is it? He certainly is extremely handsome and has a very long tail.
