Canadian artist Roadsworth transforms streets into art

A few years ago Boing Boing shared this documentary about Canadian street artist Peter Gibson a.k.a. Roadsworth, and his Instagram account offers a treasure trove of more his work. Many of Gibson’s designs are politically pointed. As his captions explain, his street murals touch on everything from the refugee crisis to commercialism:
