Exploring the Desert
2016
- Waxhead

Toronto born street artist, Waxhead, has been a major player in Canada’s graffiti and street art culture for almost a decade now. The artist got his name when he painted a creature with an ominous dripping head – simply put, a wax head. Having moved to Montreal in 2012 to develop his distinct craft in the streets and in studio, he is famous for his characters ranging from brightly coloured cats with elongated tongues, to creepy beings out of a dream. Waxhead creates brightly complex landscapes and fantastical folklore using gallon paint, spray-paint and oil sticks, leaving detailed works of art on almost every block in Montreal.
