Roa bis



A couple of months ago I discovered Roa in Australia through Perth Daily photo blog  - http://whatisbelgium.blogspot.be/2012/04/roa.html- 
I was determined to find Roa in Belgium. I went hunting around Brussels and found these drawing in an abandoned school near the Botanique. I am convinced  Roa was at work here.

  1. It is definitely his work, I think! It looks just like his other pigs!

  5. Very nice drawings!
    I don't know Roa, but I guess I now you introduced me to him!

    I'm very curious to find out where that abandoned school is, looks like a great location to take pics!

  8. Hallo Anni,
    Toch mooier dan de meeste tags die zowat overal op de muren verschijnen!!!
    Stereo fotografie was fel in de mode begin van de XXe eeuw maar belandde in de vergeethoek in de jaren 50. Als men de beelden met een aangepaste kijker beziet is het reliëf spectaculair :-)
    Groetjes,
    Frans

  12. Je ne connaissais pas Roa mais j'ai rencontré de vrais petits cochons en extérieur l'année dernière dans la Drôme...
    En Guyane, j'ai retrouvé, à St-Laurent-du-Maroni et Cayenne, les "libres corps blancs" de Jérôme Mesnager qui officie beaucoup à Belleville et Montmartre. Le monde est tout petit.

  13. Een wel doorvoed everzwijn! Of het zijn werk is, weet ik niet maar hij heeft het misschien wel in onze Ardennen ontmoet!

  14. I've learned something new today. I'd never heard of Roa before now. :) Very interesting photos.

  15. I agree absolutely Anni, this is definitely ROA's handiwork! Nice detective work here I love your determination, I'm still on the hunt also I know there is more in Perth!!

  16. Oi, I don't think such art subjects would succeed here. :)

  17. Emm, I am glad you agree

    Lies, laat me weten waar, ik ben benieuwd

    Glad it makes you smile Sylvia K

    Thanks, Michelle

    Petra, funny that he is one of your favorites.. Will keep my eyes open now next time I visit London, Paris etc

    Jeroen, I am happy to tell you about an artist you don't yet know. School info follows by mail

    En effet, Pierre, également à Paris, il paraît

    Anna, ik denk wel dat hij het is

    Frans, ik moet het absoluut eens door zo'n kijker zien. Ben benieuwd.

    Grazie Antonella, contenta come sempre con il tuo commento.

    Happy about that diane b en Kris.

    Me too, Diane, glad you like it

    Marguerite, je suis tout à fait d' accord. Il y a des vrais petits cochons partout dans le monde. Mais Roa est assez différent de Jérôme Mesnager ..

    Mijnnikonenik, zo had ik het niet bekeken maar de inspiratie komt vast uit onze Ardennen.

    PerthDailyPhoto.. you see what you got me into :)

    Dina, even though they probably would not succeed where you live, I appreciate you taking the time to comment on them !

  18. I like the pencil-drawing style of this one. Very nice!

  19. I've spotted two cool guys in your previous blog. Twice even! were they following you?

  20. ik heb dat varken ook gezien in Brussel...

    groeten

  21. Ciao Anni, sei un'ottima segugia, la tua intensa ricerca è stata brillantemente compensata!
    Allegra giornata!

  22. Thank you Halycon

    Chris, well spotted, indeed, they follow me from time to time, all over the place. They are Jason and Thomas and one of them at least is my biggest supporter

    Willy, het kan zijn dat er op de Kolenmarkt ook een is, dat weet ik niet, ik zoek het uit. Hoe kan ik uw blog terugvinden? De link werkt niet als ik op uw naam klik.

    Sciarada, grazi, magari e ache un po de buona fortuna e non tante la mia determinazione ? -;

  23. Ja zo'n varken kan je inderdaad vinden bij de Kolenmarkt.

    Er was ook zo'n rat te zien op de Bruul in Mechelen. Weet niet of die er nu nog is.
