Tyrell on Roadsworth’s stump

Posted by in Art, Personal Travails

I was with my little brother Tyrell las week in downtown Montreal, and low-and-behold, in front of the huge shopping mall on St Catharines Street, we saw street stencil art that was clearly done by the infamous Roadsworth. This semester we are showing a film about Roadsworth at Cinema Politica, produced by my friend Sergeo Kirby.

The new street art was part of a city project, which surprised me to hear, considering how political it was. There were stencils of fish and text that said “Overfishing, Overshopping” and the ones pictured here with Tyrell that shows tree stumps and the text under “Made from Paper.” Pretty political in a major shopping area for the city of Montreal to rubber stamp. Nice work!
