Torontoist would like to give everyone another reason why they should fight the proposed anti-postering bylaw with everything they’ve got, rock posters. The streets, hoardings and lampposts of the city are frequently blessed by beautiful work by people like the Complaint Department and Michael Comeau (one of his more recent works was the poster for the packed Toronto Public Space Committee Fundraiser). Occasionally we are also blessed by a poster from Montreal duo Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau, better known as Seripop. The duo have been printing posters since 2002 and have a lot to show for it. They’ve travelled all over North America, shown in more galleries than we can count and have worked with bands like Hot Hot Heat, the Arcade Fire and the Unicorns.
We won’t have to wander up and down the street and look around bulletin boards around town for their work. Seripop will be showing at Artlab (457 Richmond St. W.), the show opens tonight and is only running until March 3rd.
