ROA "Hypnagogia" London Solo Show Opening Coverage

Last night in London, SAN attended the opening of ROA's new solo show in London at StolenSpace.
The exhibition was held in 2 different spaces, StolenSpace permanent gallery in the Truman Brewery with some good smaller pieces but the real highlight was the larger scale installation work at The Stone Masons on Osborne Street which felt similar to a laboratory with a seriously brilliant setup and loads to discover.
The attendees were in for a treat discovering ROA's new body of work, clever, interesting and interactive pieces produced on found materials collected from all over London, you can touch them, move them and change their layout and appearance.
It's been one of the most interesting show we've been to lately and we can only recommend you to stop by if you are in London.

The show runs until May 6th at StolenSpace and The Stone Masons, 17 Osborne Street London E1 6TD.

  1. This really is an awesome show. The subject matter works so well with the materials used. The 3D / installation element of the pieces takes Roa's already amazing street work to a completely different level. The 2nd gallery is especially impressive as you are totally emerged into the subject matter as you walk around and through the pieces as well as being able to touch them and change their perspective and layout. A really excellent show and one you can easily go back to again and again. The book that accompanies this show also looked really cool. Very impressed!

  2. The book is an " old " one no ? At 500 ex ? I think it's sold cheaper... Is it this one please ?

  3. Yes, it is that book. I guess technically it doesn't accompany this specific show but you know what I mean! :-) It's a good insight into how the artist works
