“My working process has always begun with an evaluation of the space in which the work will appear. This involves an assessment of the various aspects of the space, including its architectural, geographical, historical and social characteristics to name a few. It is one or more of these elements that will help anchor the piece within a given space.”
Originally from Toronto, Peter Gibson, aka Roadsworth, is a street artist who has been painting the city of Montreal since 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bicycle routes, and suspicious of auto-mobility in general, he is aiming to develop a new language around street markings and combine those alternative elements of the urban landscape using a primarily stencil-based technique. Gibson continues to work with both painted and sculptural media, transforming urban spaces into pedestrian playgrounds.
