Benny Wilding discovers his passion for art walking the streets and exploring neighborhoods the first time he steps in New York back in the mid-90’s. Heavily impressed by the numerous graffiti pieces across a city that never sleeps, Benny comes back to his home town Montreal with a freshly motivated mind and the desire to get involved 100% in the graffiti culture. After years of graffiti and a huge contribution to the local scene, Benny recently decided to focus on a more refined and artistic approach to graffiti and art forms inspired by the street way of life. Since the first day he grabbed a spray can, his work is influenced by a constant desire towards evolution, by his environment and by his lifestyle.
