Fonki

Fonki started off doing mostly graffiti with figurative elements and has grown to give Montreal some of its best figurative murals. He actually shines the most when he brings together these two aspects of urban art within his work. He has contributed to many festivals such as Mural Festival, Under Pressure and Elementakiza and has worked for A’Shop. He’s been very active creating elsewhere in Quebec as well as in Cambodia. You can see more of his work on his personal, Instagram and Facebook pages. Essential viewing for fans of Fonki are 2 documentaries on him and his art: The Roots Remain and Fonkiworld.

Fonki a commencé par faire du graffiti avec des éléments figuratifs et en est venu à créer des murales figuratives se classant parmi les plus aimées à Montréal. En fait, il est à son meilleur lorsqu’il combine ces deux aspects de l’art urbain dans ses oeuvres. Il a contribué à plusieurs festivals tels que le Festival Mural, Under Pressure et Elementakiza et travaille à l’occasion pour A’Shop. Il est très actif ailleurs au Québec ainsi qu’au Cambodge, vous pouvez voir ces oeuvres hors-Montréal sur ses pages personelle, Instagram et Facebook. Les fans de Fonki se doivent de voir deux documentaires sur Fonki et son art: Retour Aux Sources et Fonkiworld.
