Youtube Roa paints the big bird on Hanbury Street, Brick Lane
Spitalfields Life April 28, 2010 The return of Roa, street artist
ROA generally paints wild/urban animals and birds that are native to the area being painted
ROA uses a minimal color pallet, such as black, white.
The very striking crane in Hanbury Street - very impressive especially when I found out that originally ROA planned to paint a heron (local to UK). People from the Bangladeshi community kept asking if it was a crane (which is important to them) and so he changed his plan and it became the "sacred crane".
ROA was commissioned by the City of Fremantle to leave his mark on Fremantle, in about 12 hours ROA created a 25-metre (82 ft) mural of a Numbat which he chose because it is a local endangered species.

Stik Pride Banner 20th June,2016
London based graffiti artist, especially in Shoreditch. Paints large stick figures. Despite being very simple, he manages to convey emotion. I especially like the one with a burka clad figure holding hands with a non burka wearing figure.
London based - large graphic alphabet letters on shop shutters.
Attractive, easy to take, fresh - have become commercial.
