Artist ‘Roadsworth’ Uses Public Streets as a Canvas for Art and Activism

January 4, 2017

One might not think that parking lots, crosswalks, and other broad asphalt expanses would be particularly amenable to artwork, but for Montreal-based artist and activist Roadsworth (aka Peter Gibson, previously) every white or yellow traffic paint stripe is a new opportunity. Although his work on the road is what he’s most known for—turning parking stripes into dandelions or urging drivers to get out of their cars and onto bicycles—he’s also branched out into other mediums, creating large scale installations and working on mural commissions. He recently updated his website with tons of work (both old and new) and currently has a print available. You can also follow Roadsworth on Instagram.
