Originally from Toronto, Peter Gibson, aka Roadsworth, started painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. His art began with the use of road signs and other elements of the landscape. using the stencil technique. His mandate was mainly to challenge the omnipresence of the automobile by promoting the city’s bike paths. In 2008, Alan Kohlun made a film about his work “Roadsworth: Crossing the line”. The film was broadcast during The Biennale of Montreal 2009.
