The street artist Peter Gibson, aka Roadsworth, is known for pushing the boundaries in the streets of Montreal, Canada. It all started in the fall of 2001.
With his masks and paints, he started creating fun urban ‘works of art’ that, obviously, didn’t please everyone.
Initially viewed as mischief or vandalism, Roadsworth’s spray painted images stirred a debate about freedom of expressions in public spaces.
Recently he collaborated with Brian Armstrong collecting and processing recycled material for an ecosystem installation in a shopping mall. 1,000s of plastic bottles and 100s of square meters of cardboard made up a temporary installation called Fragile.
The purpose with Fragile was not, as Gibson himself expressed in an interview, to urge people to recycle more but to convey a feeling of awareness in general.
