Peter Gibson alias Roadsworth

 

Roadsworth began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of « car culture » in general, he continued to develop a language around street markings and other elements of the urban landscape using a primarily stencil based technique.

 

In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief.

 

Despite the threat of heavy fines and a criminal record he received a relatively lenient sentence which he attributes in part to the public support he received subsequent to his arrest.

 

Since that time, Roadsworth has received various commissions for his work and continues to be active in both visual art and music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peter Gibson, alias Roadsworth, a commencé sa carrière en peignant dans les rue de Montréal à l’automne 2001.

 

Initialement inspiré par le désir de voir plus de pistes cyclables dans la ville et de remettre en question la culture de la voiture en général, il a continué à développer un langage autour de la peinture de rue et d’autres éléments du paysage urbain en utilisant principalement une technique de pochoir.

 

Il réalise maintenant des oeuvres à travers le monde et continue d’explorer ses talents en arts visuels et en musique.
