Roa’s work threatened by Hackney Council

As most of you may know, one of Roa‘s beloved works in East London is facing removal after the owners of the building were told they have 14 days to remove it or the Council will. The whole ordeal is a bit ridiculous, since the Hackney Council is calling the piece a “blight on the environment”even though the owners the building gave the artist permission to paint int he first place. An online petition is going on to save the work and pretty much tell the Council to back off. So sign it and try to save the piece. I would hate to start seeing even more works under glass…
