The orange, blue, green, and yellow tubes correspond to the métro’s four lines, while the purple tube represents the commuter trains.
About the artist
Born in Granby in 1955, Yves Gendreau developed his artistic skills in Québec’s network of autonomous artists’ centres. Trained as a carpenter, he has installed his playful and energetic “sculptural constructions” throughout Québec.
