Roadsworth : Crossing The Line

ROADSWORTH: CROSSING THE LINE chronicles the artist’s clandestine campaign to make his mark on city streets.

Hailed as an “artist’s artist” by New York’s Wooster Collective, Peter Gibson, aka Roadsworth began to play with the language of the streets, overlaying city asphalt markings with his own images: a crosswalk became a giant boot print, vines choked up traffic dividers, and electrical plugs filled parking spots. Each piece begged the question, who owns public space?

As he is prosecuted at home and celebrated abroad, Roadsworth struggles to defend his work, define himself as an artist and address difficult questions about art and freedom of expression.
