Belgian street artist Roa opened his new solo show entitled “Hypnagogia” at Stolenspace Gallery last week. The show was split between two spaces with a menagerie of creatures on show.  The main gallery space held several smaller scale originals on found objects and on display were a few copies of his new artist book being released that night by Mammal Press “Roa: An Introduction To Animal Representation”.  75 copies of the book were released on sale on the opening night at a handsome £175 each, but the books were gorgeously bound and included two pull out screen prints.  While the other temporary gallery space located near the end of brick lane held much larger scale installation works and originals.  All of the works   As usual Roa depicts his creatures in various states including alive, dead, decaying and dissected which were mostly interactive by being able to flip doors around to show the various changes. Whether it is showing the skeletal structure of the animal or the vascular system it made for a very interesting show.  I think most people will agree the show is amazing and not one to miss.

The show runs in both spaces from April 20th 2012 – May 6th 2012.

Some of the pieces you will see in the show are shown below but to avoid spoiling it I have limited it to only a few shots.

    I don't think I need to explain why Coarse Toys have garnered a cult following. And the German duo's illustrations are just as alluring as their toys.

    You might remember Hyrule Historia, which collected the development history and lore of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. I pass on this because the coverage for the pre-3D era was pretty light.
