Street Artist Paints Animals On Cabinets That Open To Reveal Detailed Anatomy

We previously featured the giant murals of ROA, which seek to bring attention to eco-threatening human activities.

The Belgian street artist's new series titled ‘Metazoa’ feature his signature black and white animals painted on old wooden cabinets. Once opened or shifted, they reveal the anatomical details of these animals.

The animals he chose for the series are those that have been forced from their native habitats and now live on the urban outskirts. These include the beaver who was thought to be extinct in New York City.

His work continues to remind viewers of the relationship man has with the natural environment, and how animals evolve to adapt to the urban landscape. His work is currently on exhibition at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.
