To kick off the new year and commemorate the January 4, 2020, game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Stikki Peaches, a popular artist from the city proposes a creation inspired by the spirit of competition for which he hand-embellished each one of the 110 reproductions.
"La Course au Championnat" is a journey through time diving into the artist’s universe composed of iconic figures from the past. Featuring one of each club’s greatest players, Maurice Richard and Mario Lemieux, at the wheel of cars designed for destruction, Stikki Peaches deals with the spirit of competition off the ice. Each silkscreen print was affixed to a wall in the artist’s studio, taking the form of an art installation before being transformed with spray paint, pastel, pencil and marker, making each reproduction a unique work of art.
Signed and numbered by the artist, the seventh artwork resulting from the collaboration honors nostalgia, strength and the pleasure of competition.
The anonymous Montréal artist is best known for the tagline “What if Art Ruled the World” weaved throughout his celebrity mash-up wheat pastes. The anonymous street artist is strongly influenced by pop culture references and lowbrow street culture. Using a variety of media including collage, acrylic paint, and silkscreen, Stikki Peaches’ work occupies a liminal space between the street and the gallery.
