Street artist ROA for Skateistan in Cambodia

“It’s a beautiful project because it helps kids that don’t have many opportunities”

ROA – 2012

roa_01

Our collaboration with Belgian street artist ROA was a unique opportunity to travel to Cambodia and officialise our partnership with the NGO Skateistan, in presence of the artist.

The Decay series by ROA represents a cornerstone of the artist’s work who, like a modern da Vinci, explores the anatomy of his creatures as well as the biological process of decomposition.

With a little scouting in Phnom Penh, we even got some phosphorous paint to lighten up a giant firefly painted by the artist on a water tower at the school; so the last thing the children see when they leave school is a giant glowing firefly, a beacon of light when the sun goes down. Check the video.

We donated 15,000$ To Skateistan’s facility in Phnom Pehn in the name of the artist, to help them develop their Skate and Create lessons for the children.

The equivalent to providing programs for up to 480 students in Cambodia for 2 months!
