ROA's huge new Hedgehog Mural in Shoreditch

ROA's Shoreditch Hedgehog Street Art Mural

Following the opening of his successful London solo shows "Hypnagogia" at Stolen Space last Thursday night (covered here), Belgian artist ROA took to the streets of London Saturday evening and began work on this large scale hedgehog mural located on Chance Street just off Bethnal Green Road and opposite the Shoreditch Overground Station in East London

After sketching up the outlines for the creature and laying down the base colours last night, the artist returned this afternoon to complete the piece. The hedgehog mural drew huge crowds throughout the day with new and old street art fans stopping to take pictures of the artist at work as well as having their photos taken with ROA. Working late into the evening this latest street art mural is almost complete with a small few pieces which ROA plans to finish in the morning before he leaves London onto his next adventure. We think you will all agree that this is another fantastic piece from ROA and a great new addition to the streets of East London.

oh, what a terrible Hedgehog - I'd have been scared in the dark :))

That is the ugliest hedgehog I've ever seen and I've seen hundreds.

I think this is totally rad. You have to remember, and I'm assuming here, that the idea of the artist was to create an urban caricature of a hedgehog and I think it's paid off. Shame it's eyes don't glow in the dark. :-) Anything that raises awareness of hedgies is a good thing.

Hog publicity is good and the artwork impressive in terms of scale - might frighten children though!
