#KWayCulture

Matt Feigin, President of K-Way North America and local Montrealer, took an interest in contemporary street art about two years ago when he first saw the work of Stikki Peaches. He contacted us at Station 16 to buy a piece, and his interest in contemporary street art has only grown since. He has become a small collector. He now owns pieces by Whatisadam, as well as a series by Peter Andrew & Derek Blais, purchased while at The Scope Art Fair in NYC.  Matt actually sponsored the renowned Instagram street art curators Instagrafite to join us in New York to cover Scope and the week in NYC. That visit led to a series of devoted Instagram posts called the K-Way Culture walk. Check them out on Instagram with #KWayCulture.
