Montreal-based artists Ankhone and Nicole Boyce created this piece on the back of Cottonwood Autobody for Nelson International Mural Festival in 2021.

“At the beginning of the ’90s, Ankh started doing graffiti on the walls of his beautiful native city of Grenoble, nestled at the foot of the Alps.
It is this mode of expression that led him to the benches of a graphic school.
Mastering these newfound institutional techniques, he gradually transposed his pictorial and graphic work to painting, without ever breaking the link to the graffiti culture that motivated this progression.
Well-versed in graphic design, illustration, and painting, he uses all these mediums to represent what he calls “poetry in motion”.
Whether it’s on his canvas or at the workplace, he has a passion for detail and a commitment to quality.
In the summer of 2013 Ankh landed in Quebec (Montreal) where he lives and works now.”
