Street artist Roa painted up a peculiar piece in London recently. From one direction, the work depicts a preposterously large white rabbit, which sheds its skin to reveal some bloody innards when viewed from the other side. The Belgian artist put up the lenticular piece in Shoreditch, where it was snared by photographer Romanywg. […]
