Peter Gibson (aka Roadsworth) began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. He was motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of “car culture” in general. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. Despite the threat of heavy fines and a criminal record he received a relatively lenient sentence which he attributes in part to the public support he received subsequent to his arrest. Since that time, Roadsworth has received various commissions for his work and continues to be active in both visual art and music.
Some people will say it’s definitely Banksy others will deny that. I intentionally haven’t written the artists that made these graffiti stencils , because it always gets people into quarrel. Moreover, knowing the artist distorts the way you see and evaluate the Artwork itself – because if you are a fan of Banksy – even a poo on a wall made by him will look cool to you. I give you an unique opportunity to see this art without knowing who drew it (if you don’t know it already of course) and be not biased about it. Enjoy the street art!

This selection includes information about the artists and a lot of photos of their work, a lot of graffiti artists do a lot of great pieces but these guys just kill it. Artists from all over the world that you can miss out. I'll try to keep this post going as a series to bring more of this for you.
Banksy , the prolific, British, graffiti-artist-prankster declares, “New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead.” Last week this master of satire opened The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City to display peculiar breeds and brands of creatures in humorous, yet disturbing, scenarios. The precise animatronics of these mutants are extending the gazes of onlookers and raising more than an eyebrow or two. The show is visible to the public both day and night through the store front windows. You can see McNuggets dipping themselves in (or sipping) barbecue sauce, a rabbit putting on makeup, baby cctv cameras staring lovingly at a larger “mother” camera, and a wildcat (convincingly folded leopard print coat) sleeping and curling it’s tail.
Not a half-step away from yesterday's Dwarf Fortress mega-construction -- but somehow with a much darker core -- TheImperar's over-meticulously constructed Sim City 3000 island paradise/hell is "inspired by the wheel of life and death" and supports an apparently unheard-of six million+ population ("more residents than Hong Kong", notes Julian Dibbell ). Watching the work that went into the magnum opus feels a bit like wandering into the hastily-abandoned studio apartment of an evil genius, or, worse, having your eyelids propped open and being forced to behold his magnificent wonder. Anyway, it's the most drama you'll see squeezed from a pile of skyscrapers and ideally-placed libraries all week, probably.
