Melbourne's ROAR group of young artists emerged in the early 1980s as a rebellion against many of the mores of the then art world. They created wild and colourful paintings, drank beer instead of wine and set up studios and an exhibition space in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Now, thirty years later, the art of Wayne Eager, Sarah Faulkner, Andrew and Peter Ferguson, Pasquale Giardino, Karan Hayman, Ann Howie, Mark Howson, David Larwill, Michael Nicholls, Jill Noble, Mark Schaller and Judi Singleton has been both re-viewed and re-commissioned for an extraordinary book. This huge and colourful volume is as inventive in its production values as this group's approach to art deserves. It also contains unique photographic spreads of the artists working in their studios. This exciting book will be a revelation to those who know of ROAR, and an introduction to those who missed the generation of the movement thirty years ago.

Comments about ROAR Re-viewed:
This big, beautiful book is a marvellous expose on the influencial and original group of Melbourne artists who named themselves 'Roar'. Lots and lots of big, bold pictures of their early work as well more recent works along side of a well written account of each artist and the group as a whole. Great for fans of Roar or for art lovers in general.
