Mural Festival 2014

This post covers the 2014 edition of Mural Festival. For other editions, see posts related to the 2013 edition and the 2015 edition. You may also want to check out this walking tour which I have put together: starting from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, up St-Dominique and the eastern side of St-Laurent then down Clark and the western side of St-Laurent.

Cet article présente les oeuvres produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 du Festival Mural. Pour les autres éditions, voir Festival Mural 2013 et Festival Mural 2015. Vous pourriez aussi être intéressé par ce tour pédestre que j’ai créé: débutant à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, ensuite vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

The sponsored mural for 2014 was done by Kashink from France. It replaced the En Masse one from the 2013 edition, and it was replaced with a new mural during the 2015 edition.

Cyrcle from the USA. This one was not replaced but it is still gone because the wall on which it was painted had to be rebuilt.

Alexis Diaz from Puerto Rico. This one is still in place.

Wheatpaste mural by Miss Me (from France but active in Montreal). This was painted over with something new during the 2015 edition.

This mural by 123Klan was replaced with something new during the 2015 edition.

Seth from France. This one now has graffiti on its base but it is still up.

Vilx (from France but active in Montreal). Still up.

Rone from Australia. The base is now covered with graffiti but the mural is still up.

Alex Produkt. This unfortunately did not last long before it was erased by the owner of the wall.

Betz from the Etam Cru (Poland). Still up.

Bryan Beyung. Still up.

Zilon. Parts are covered with tags and graffiti, but this is still there.

Zema. Still with us.

Kevin Ledo. Still up.

KG featuring Scaner and Axe (side view). Still up.

KG featuring Scaner and Axe (back view). Still up.

Zoltan V. Still there.

This Caron piece was covered with something new during the 2015 edition.

RR & DB. This photo was taken only a few weeks after the piece was created and already the wheatpastes were coming apart. This wall has since been plastered over with posters, presumably as part of the Inside Out Project and then redone with a new mural during the 2015 edition.

Inti. Still up.

Andrew Antonaccio. Still there.

2501 from Italy. Unfortunately this wall is only properly visible from a seldom used segment of St-Dominique. The bottom of it was also quickly covered in graffiti (more than what is seen in this photo, which was taken only a few days after the piece was finished). Still in place.

Mathieu Connery’s sidewalk pieces

For the 2013 edition of the festival, Montreal artist Mathieu Connery painted three pieces in his own abstract and somewhat geometrical style on the sidewalks of St-Laurent. For the 2014 edition, the fading 2013 creations were painted over with new pieces, and seven new ones were added along the St-Laurent axis. Photos in the gallery below that were taken from an elevated position are © Vandalog. The ones taken at ground level are mine.

Dans le cadre de l’édition 2013 du festival, l’artiste montréalais Mathieu Connery a peint sur les trottoirs de la rue St-Laurent trois différentes pièces dans son style abstrait et géométrique. Pour l’édition 2014 du festival, ces dernières ayant été défraichies par l’hiver et la pluie, de nouvelles créations ont été peintes par dessus et sept nouvelles pièces ont été ajoutées le long de l’axe St-Laurent. Les photos aériennes dans la galerie ci-dessous sont © Vandalog. Celles prises au niveau du sol sont miennes.

For the 2014 edition of the Mural Festival, France’s Le Diamantaire put up some of his creations – diamonds cut out of recycled mirror pieces – all over the St-Laurent axis and beyond.

Dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 du Festival Mural, Le Diamantaire a collé ici et là le long de l’axe St-Laurent et aux alentours un certain nombre de ses créations, des formes de diamants taillés à partir de miroirs recyclés.
