Cheeky activist and artist Roadsworth is quickly becoming the Banksy or Shepard Fairey of his hometown Montreal. But rather than spraying his artwork onto blank canvases like a walls or billboards, he uses shadows, stains and traditional road markings as inspiration. He began in 2001, painting yellow bicycle symbols around town as a form of protest against the lack of non-exhaust pathways. After 9/11, his focus quickly grew. “Instead of feeling like a helpless passenger on a train headed for disaster I felt that I had created a voice for myself amid the noise of the city. This is one of the reasons I resorted to a form of iconography that I feel is closer in spirit to satire than it is to protest.” Like all street artists, Roadsworth has had his fair share of run-ins with the law (fifty-three counts to be exact) so he remains relatively anonymous, but is available for commissions.
