Montreal native Whatisadam (WIA) is one of the city’s best known urban artists. Infused with Canadian imagery, Whatisadam’s style is reminiscent of vintage comics and pop art. While North American wildlife and landscapes are common themes in his work, he often reimagines them to feature elements of urban culture, as seen in his cans of maple ‘sizzurp’ or tattooed ducks.
In addition to his wheatpastes and stencils found throughout the city, Whatisadam has a diverse studio practice, including silkscreen prints, large-scale murals, installation work, as well as a proclivity towards using found objects as his canvas. Whatisadam’s work can be seen in the streets of Montreal, Toronto, New York, Paris, Miami and Mexico City.
