Roadsworth - Feature Film Now Released!

Explore the work of Roadsworth and his controversial art in the streets.

The feature film is now released!

Peter Gibson (a.k.a. Roadsworth) began a playful dialogue with the citizens of Montreal through a series of artistic interventions. Using stencils and paint, he set out to transform a crosswalk into a row of birthday candles, and double lines on the street into a zipper.

He had to face charges for over 80 counts of mischief. His art has quietly aroused the imagination of passers-by, but media reports of his arrest thrust him into the limelight. What followed was a public dialogue on art and public space. Artistic communities support Roadsworth, but in the city's eyes, he has crossed the line.

Rediscover the CITIZENShift content that takes you back to 2005 when director Alan Kohl began to develop the film.
