A look around Roa’s show at the Pure Evil gallery

Roa’s work translates easily from the streets to a gallery setting and this show in the small but perfectly formed Pure Evil Gallery in Shoreditch is one of the finest I’ve seen in a long time. Featuring a pretty unique interactive element many of the artworks can be flipped open or closed to reveal the different states of their animals decay or their vital organs. And with a cleverly layed out range of site specific works, art pieces for sale and a room full of photos of his work in situ the space it’s a show that London really needs right now to give it a much needed shot of originality. Here’s hoping that originality transfers itself to the streets as well before Roa leaves town….
