The Bootleggers: A Stikki Story

Mar 16, 2017 - Apr 08, 2017Station 16 Gallery, Montreal

In this premiere solo exhibition at Station 16 Gallery in Montreal, Stikki Peaches will be presenting a new body of works on paper. These unique pieces are created using a traditional collage process with unconventional three-dimensional additions such a spray can nozzles, paint can lids, as well as other manners of studio miscellanea. 

Stikki Peaches, best known for the tagline “What if Art Ruled the World?” and celebrity mash-up wheat pastes, has been taking over the streets on an international level since 2009. Strongly influenced by pop culture, Stikki Peaches combines images of classic films, celebrities, and musical icons into hybrid characters. Using a variety of media, including collage, acrylic paint, and silkscreen, Stikki Peaches’ work occupies an interesting liminal space between the street and the gallery. With an active following on social media, Stikki Peaches frequently engages with his audience by leaving clues for treasure hunts through Instagram, bridging the gap created by maintaining an anonymous identity.

The vernissage will be held on March 16th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Station 16 Gallery
