He was born and raised in the Belgian town of Ghent, in the west of the country. But his drawings have been on almost every continent. Roa started to paint under the revolutionary music of America and still considers its primary for themselves.
As he told Roa, it all began with drawings under bridges and in abandoned parts of the settlements to the music of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys. By the standards of cities, his native Ghent more like a village, but even here there are fans of the fine arts in all its forms of manifestation. Roa did not expect from those who see his work, some specific emotions. The main thing is for people to react, and how - completely unimportant. The artist often paints animals, because he believes that they most clearly reflect the sense that Roa would like to inform the world.
