One of the latest additions to our street art collection is a beautiful tribute to Montreal's very own Rick Genest, aka "Zombie Boy." The mural is located on rue Acorn in the neighbourhood of St-Henri.\nThe late Zombie Boy was an artist, model, musician, and actor. He starred in Lady Gaga's iconic "Born This Way" music video and worked as a model for Thierry Mugler.\nThe new piece was created by the talented @Aweille_esti on Instagram, a Montrealer whose work can be found around the globe.\nThe artist posted a photo of the Zombie Boy mural with a moving caption: "Happy to be back in my beautiful city. This one's an homage to a local icon. A man who truly wasn't afraid to stand out from the crowd. R.I.P. Rico aka ZombieBoy."\nWe got AWiE's permission to share their work, which is tucked away among former industrial buildings north of the Lachine Canal.\nView this post on Instagram Happy to be back in my beautiful city.
