This Giant Rabbit was painted by Belgian street artist Roa on the side of a shop on Hackney Road in London in March 2010.
This was painted with the owner’s approval and permission. Yet the council served the owners with a removal order in October, but after a petition and public outcry, the council decided against removing the rabbit. Thank common sense! Councils need to realise that good artwork can beautify an area and can attract people to it. Besides, what gives the council the right to remove artwork on land that doesn’t belong to them?
Roa really does get around. This Dead Rabbit by Roa can be found in Williamsburg, New York City.
This four story rabbit in Zaragoza, Spain.
Maybe the most spectacular, at least technically, would be their lenticular piece on this London garage door.
