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: I think it’s a really sweet opportunity to be in a crew that is so creative, to discover the work of people that I already know and the discover new artworks. It’s always fun to work in collaborative project, I did that before, but it’s the first time that it’s in a big scale like that. I like the vibe, yeah I really like the vibe.
Q: How does it feel to create and work in a staircase?
A: I think it’s funny because in my past, when I was a student, I wanted to work in assurance, so I think it’s funny to create a mural that is so amazing in normal workplaces. I hope it will put some joy in here because there is a lot of colors. So, I guess it will make people happy.
Q: What is a museum for you?
A: For me, it’s always a place where I can think of new ideas. The notion of museum is so large, we can talk about the MAC as we can talk about this museum but in two different ways. So, I believe that all kind of museums has their place to show different face of what creation is.
