Roa will be having a solo show at INOPERAbLE and the Street Art Passage in Vienna on August 26th. In preparation he started with doing this wall near the gallery. ROA's highly sought after books will also be available through the gallery. Limited copies so reserve yours now!

I think I know where this is, but only because I recognized a bar in the background I hope to get there before it gets painted over by some idiots (although I think the Viennese are just too lazy). We have to meet at the opening!

I went to Inoperable Gallery yesterday and also checked out the mural close-by which looks great. From a conversation I had overheard at the gallery the animal is supposed to be a squirrel (interesting, as I would not have recognized it). They still take preorders for the book which costs 165 Euros (prepayment is necessary). No print release is planned, but there will be a lot of smaller works. That's all info I got.

Well, he's selling original works upwards of 10-20K now US so to get a drawing for around 500/600 US sounds pretty good to me. He's only going up from here. His pricing went up a good bit after the MOCA show and rightfully so.
500 to 600 as a low end for an original seems fair to me. well, i guess it depends on just how "small" they really are. there aren't many artists out there that i feel can produce a drawing that could fit into a jar and get away with it.
so much of what I enjoy about Roa is the pieces that change when you open a door or change your perspective so I am not really feeling this as much. Doesnt change my status as a fan but I dint feel like I had to have any of the pieces on the price list.
