Labrona

Labrona is one of the big names of Montreal’s street art scene. He is often commissionned for murals and other painted work (even outside Montreal) but, as seen in the photo gallery below, he is also quite active unofficially. For much more on the artist than what is shown here (particularly for his non-street work), check out labrona.net as well as his Instagram page.

Labrona est un des grands de la scène montréalaise de street art. Il est souvent embauché pour effectuer des murales et autres oeuvres peintes (même hors de Montréal) mais, tel que vu dans la galerie ci-dessous, une grande part de son oeuvre n’est pas officielle. Pour en voir beaucoup plus que ce qui est présenté ici, jetez un coup d’oeil à labrona.net ainsi qu’à sa page Instagram.


Murals

Collaboration with Gawd in Plateau End.

This one is found in the Quartier Latin. Works by Gawd, Alex Produkt and Bfour were added later at the bottom. On the subject of this mural, check out these in-progress shots.

The bottom strip of the above piece was redone in 2017, all by Labrona this time.

Métro Jarry ceilings of rain shelter

(Mu project 2013-2014)

This project was started during the summer of 2013 and 3 of the 4 ceilings were finished before winter set in. The last ceiling was done early in 2014 and the columns in the autumn of 2014.
