ROC514

ROC514 is mostly recognised for a cute round bird which can be found pasted all over Montreal. This bird has been seen in a variety of colours and patterns. The bigger varieties are usually made of pasted paper while the smaller ones come as stickers. Some have also been found painted and drawn. The artist often collaborates with other street artists and graffiti writers, a section of the photo gallery below features these collaborations.

ROC514 left Montreal for BC in 2017, but many specimens of her work are still found in the streets and alleys of Montreal. I expect she will keep a presence in our city through visits as well as the collaboration of many artists/friends who will put up her stickers. She did keep the ‘514’ in her name after all!

For more on ROC514, have a look at her Facebook and Instagram pages. You can buy ROC514 art and sticker packs at Storenvy.

ROC514 est surtout connue pour un petit oiseau dodu collé un peu partout dans plusieurs quartiers de Montréal. L’oiseau en question existe en de nombreuses couleurs et textures. Les plus grands spécimens sont sous forme de collages tandis que les plus petits se trouvent sous forme d’autocollants. Des spécimens ont aussi été aperçus peints ou dessinés. L’artiste aime aussi collaborer avec d’autres artistes et graffeurs, une section de la galerie-photo ci-dessous présente le fruit de ces collaborations.

ROC514 a quitté Montréal en 2017 lorsqu’elle est déménagée en Colombie Britannique, mais de nombreux specimens de sa création sont toujours présents dans nos rues et ruelles. On peut s’attendre à une présence maintenue via des visites régulières et la collaboration d’artistes et d’amis d’ici qui continueront à distribuer ses autocollants. Elle a tout de même conservé le ‘514’ dans son nom après tout!
