New street art and graffiti September 2014


The first two murals below are part of the revitalization programme of rue Savoie, behind the Bibliothèque Nationale. More murals are in the works on that street, so stay tuned.

Les deux premières murales ci-dessous font partie du plan de revitalisation de la rue Savoie, derrière la Bibliothèque Nationale. D’autres murales sont en cours de production sur cette même rue, j’en parlerai lorsqu’elles seront complétées.

Pétanque à la place d’Youville

The Old Montreal SDC has been setting up place d’Youville for a string of events called ‘Pétanque à la place d’Youville’. In the process they hired Montreal artist Tava to add some colour to the area. He has spray-painted his art on the concrete beams closing off Place d’Youville and on its picnic tables. The image gallery below shows five of the beams and two of the tables. Work was in progress at the time these photos were taken, so more is to come.

La SDC du Vieux-Montreal a réaménagé la place d’Youville pour une suite d’événements intitulée ‘Pétanque à la place d’Youville’. L’artiste montréalais Tava a été engagé pour mettre un peu de vie dans cet espace urbain. Il a peint à la cannette les blocs de béton délimitant la place ainsi que les tables de pique-nique qui s’y trouvent. La gallerie-photo ci-dessous montre cinq blocs de béton et deux tables de pique-nique. D’autres sont à venir, le travail étant en cours d’exécution au moment où ces photos furent prises.
