Immony Men was a big part of the growing skate scene in Montreal during the strong D-structure shop years. At that time he put together Addiction Magazine with a couple of friends and hosted skate contests around the city. This hand-stapled zine was distributed across Canada to Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. Being involved with these projects has given him the opportunity to make friends with skaters from all over the country. To this day he keeps tabs on his buddies, whether it be for a couch to crash on while in town, or to share his fun, noisy antics.

Within the last couple of years Immony has been traveling from Vancouver to Halifax showcasing his art in different galleries. “Taking Care of Business” is the last show he has been traveling with; it is a mural made up of 10,000 digitally printed Post-its. I told him one day that his work was like an attempt to take everyday objects and create a new intent for them. While on the road he always finds time to contact his local skater friends wherever he is for a good old skate session. He is currently finishing up his master’s degree in fine art in Windsor, Ontario. When he returns to Montreal, we know he will give the street skating scene a well-needed boost with his unique energy… — Dan Millar
