The Belgian-born street artist ROA has been painting his wonderfully detailed and insanely large images of animals all across Europe for years. Just this summer he put up amazing pieces at the Nuart Festival in Stavanger, Norway, in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, at Critica Urbana in Madrid, in London, and on the streets of Moscow. On November 1st he arrived in Los Angeles for his first-ever US show, presented by Thinkspace at the New Puppy Gallery. ROA's larger-than-life and nearly-as-threatening organic animals have already been spotted on the streets of LA reminding the residents of the City of Angels that they can't escape from nature, however hard they may try. You can follow his progress around the city here and check out ROA’s own international Flickr set here.

If you find yourself in LA, the show opens on Saturday Nov. 13th at 6PM and runs through Nov. 24th.
