ROADSWORTH

Between 2001 and 2004, annoyed by the lack of bike paths and the state of the roads, Roadsworth decided to bring attention to these issues, becoming one of the most important Montréal street artists until his arrest and loss of anonymity. He gained notoriety for his clever modifications of street markings via white and yellow stencils. By adding and rearranging various elements, he not only created a playful urban landscape but also brought the viewer to rethink his environment. Though few, if any, of these original works remain,  these capers brought the artist a significant following which, through their support during his trial, would have helped to significantly reduce his sentence. They have also opened for him the doors of the art world, offering projects and collaborations which he might not have had the opportunity of otherwise. Roadsworth continues to this day to hone his craft and create art.
