Roadsworth (a.k.a. Peter Gibson) began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. With public support on his side, his sentence was lenient: a minor fine and 40 hours of community work which entailed creating legal artwork. Today he is often commissioned to create works of art.
