Our love of Canada and its symbols have not lessened, even in these frustrating times. Although, this doesn’t mean that we don’t also think that there is a lot of work that needs to be done within our country, and across the world when it comes to systemic racism and injustices. Whatisadam’s “Moshpit Mounties” plays with the iconography of Canada’s RCMP, originally intending to be a humours imagining of the RCMP participating in a moshpit. However, in light of current affairs it can also be interrupted as something touching on the frustration we are all feeling. 


"Moshpit Mounties wasn’t created with current police brutality or injustices in mind, but the fact that there is a struggle or brawl in the image does touch on that. In a way, maybe this image can also be interpreted as the internal struggle the RCMP may be dealing with, and the fight to get to a better place.” - WIA

Biography

Montreal based artist, Whatisadam, or WIA, is one of the city’s best known urban artists. Whatisadam has also collaborated with En Masse and Osheaga.

In addition to his wheat-paste and stencil artworks, Whatisadam has a diverse studio practice including working with silkscreen printing, large-scale murals, installation work, as well as a proclivity towards using found objects as his canvas. Infused with Canadian imagery, Whatisadam’s style is reminiscent of vintage comics and pop art.
Depictions of North American wildlife and landscapes are common themes within his work, but are always reimagined to feature elements of urban culture, as seen in his maple ‘sizzurp’ cans, tattooed ducks and hockey hoodlums.
