Massive T-REX mural by ROA in Sweden

Massive mural by ROA, who recently painted a large-scale factory building in Bromölla, Sweden.  An upside down skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus was the subject of the wall and our contributing photographer Henrik Haven covered its work in progress:

The mural was made possible by the Ifö Center (who organized the mural) and their Artist-in-Residence program that ROA participated in.

Info about Ifo Center and their Artist-in-Residence program
Ifo Center is a new culture center still in its development stage. The initiative was taken in 2011 by artist couple Teresa Holmberg and Jonathan Haner. The goal is to open up the factory area for both culture and tourism. The project encompasses over 4,200 square meters of the unoccupied floors of the factory. Here we are creating collective work areas for professional artists, exhibition spaces, as well as areas for workshops. Simultaneously, we have already begun holding workshops, guided tours and have just completed our first Artist-in-Residence program with ROA being the first international artist to leave his mark on the factory walls. Ifo Center is located in the center of Bromolla, situated in north-east Scandia. The village is known for its large ceramic industry, prehistoric fossil-finds and for the world’s largest ceramic fountain (Gunnar Nylund’s ‘Scanisaurus’). Ifo Center is financed via an EU grant and is owned by Bromolla County.

Ericailcane and Blu going big at Nuart 2010. This is not crappy art.

Posted from The Citrus Report

Yesterday we wrote something about the concept of “can’t stop won’t stop” and perhaps this should be used with Italian artists Ericailcane and Blu at the moment, two major players in the European street/mural art scene. We have mentioned this before that their is a great movement occurring overseas in terms of big street art, taking entire villages and applying street art sensibility. The past few years have been great for many art observers to see where street art was going, and with this being a result on one side of the globe, it is a very strong statement.

For Nuart 201o in Norway, the two went big again. They will be joined by Vhils, ROA, Dolk, Evol, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Sten & Lex, M-City, and Dotmasters. Thanks to Arrested Motion for this images.

And when we called this art crappy yesterday, we are comparing to art like this. Art that has feeling, emotion. Not that abstract art doesn’t have it, but that particular art was lacking…..
