Zola

Montréal, QC, Canada

Zola is an anarchist, queer, settler of french-canadian descent based in so-called Montréal, occupied Kanien’kehá:ka and Anishinabe territories. She is passionate about bringing together grassroots community organizing and radical street art. Their political upbringing was through anticapitalist undercurrents of the Quebec student movement (2005-2015), and they are now connected to different affinity groups and collectives addressing anticolonialism, antiracism and art and activism. She has been doing street art for about 10 years, and for the better part of the last 8 years, their wheatpastes subjects have focused on the allegory of the rioter or anonymous protestor, breaking the stereotype of the skinny white male black bloc.
