BEHIND THE ROMEO’S GIN PROJECT, THERE’S A SERIES OF 24 MONTREAL ARTISTS. WE ASKED THEM A FEW QUESTIONS IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THEIR VISION AND THEIR EXPERIENCE OF ROMEO’S MUSEUM, CANADA’S FIRST URBAN ART MUSEUM!
Q: How does it feel to be here with 23 other artists?
A: It’s an honor to be a montreal’s gang part. It’s my first mural and It’s, I hope, not my last one.
Q: How does it feel to create and work in a staircase?
A: It’s really interesting to work such a big format so close. We work so close and we don’t have an overview. But, what is interesting, it’s to go up the stairs and there, you really have a beautiful sight!
Q: What is a museum for you?
A: It’s a exposing place of artwork. It’s the go-between the artist and the public.
