Roadsworth (Peter Gibson) is a street artist hailing from Montreal. After participating in the graffiti scene and experiencing the unfortunate consequence of arrest, Peter Gibson shifted his focus on combining his street art with public art. It is here where he draws attention to our over-indulgent capitalist environment in support of sustainable culture. His political art works explore Montreal's metropolis environment and the conflicts surrounding car culture - emphasizing the importance of bike paths and attempting to draw attention to our capitalist system built around speed, consumption, convenience, and the like.
We had the opportunity to chat with Peter Gibson after his participation "In the Public Eye: A Symposium on Public Art" held at the Museum London.
