Roadsworth-santiago-4

Canadian street artist Peter Gibson aka Roadsworth is now in Chile for the Hecho en Casa Festival where he already painted a couple of pieces in Santiago, one of them featured in this post (more coming up the next days!).
It was in 2001 when Roadsworth started a guerrilla street art campaign to encourage the city of Montreal to build more bike lanes which eventually became an art project that continues to this day. You can read Roadsworth’s general statement to learn more about his personal story, pretty interesting stuff.
