EN MASSE is a collaborative drawing initiative started by Jason Botkin and Tim Barnard in 2009. The objective was to create a collective vision with young “neo-pop” artists in Montreal. With backgrounds in comics, graffiti, design and fine arts, the artists get together to create, in situ, large black and white murals that leave much room for improvisation. Under the leadership of Jason Botkin, Rupert Bottenberg and Fred Caron, EN MASSE has authored work for the Nuit blanche of the Montréal en lumière Festival, Osheaga Festival, the Escales improbables and Piknic Électronik, as well as for a number private and public organisations, including SOS Dettes, the Cirque du Soleil, Simons and Sid Lee. http://enmasse.info/
