Rocky’s main artistic practice is his street art and political posters (ie: Anti-globalization – Quebec 2000, Reclaim the Streets, Prison Justice, Anarchist Gathering – Toronto 1988). He has been installing street art in Toronto and other Canadian cities for 40 years since he started doing street posters and graffiti in the mid-1970s. In the mid-1980’s he installed painted billboard political parodies on abandoned buildings. He has installed concrete sculptures, street-post mounted books and political historical plaques around Toronto streets. His most recent art is etched copper plaques bolted to street posts and illustrations for various political movements
