My Nids-de-Poule poster series has just been selected by the Hong Kong Heritage Musem to be exposed at the 2007 Hong Kong Poster Triennal and to be featured in their catalogue. The trienal opens on November 24th.

This poster series is part of a collective creation and exhibition celebrating Montreal's nomination as a UNESCO city of design. I akways thought that beauty and the sense of unique lays within the citiy's imperfections (if anything, its potholes are at least as impressive as it 1976 olympics) So asphalt became for a few weeks my canvas for ephemere urban interventions that surprised passers-by, offuscated a few landlords, annoyed people stuck in traffic and generated quite a buzz amongst design afficcionados.

The medium used was actylic based paint, applied directly onto the asphalt, and it lasted for about 4-5 weeks.
