Baby Seal street art mural by Belgian Urban Artist ROA in Nelson, New Zealand. 1

A super-sized baby seal took shape these last few days in central Nelson, New Zealand. It is the first piece in a series by Gent-based street artist ROA that will dominate the southern wall of Whitby House on Collingwood St. It took 4 days for ROA to complete this massive creature. ROA has not yet decided on the other creatures that will complete the work, but they are likely to have a marine theme.
If you are in the area, you’ll be able to find the wall by the car park at the back of the Indian Cafe.
Take a look at more images after the break and then check back with us in the next few days for more updates from ROA in Nelson.
