HRKR aka HoarKor

HoarKor or HRKR for short was actually a duo of artists, Hoar and Kor, both Fine Arts students at Concordia University. They have tried their hand(s) at every possible type of urban art: figurative murals, graffiti, wheatpastes, stencils, smaller paste-ups and stickers, installations and even tagging. They also did a lot of studio work, you can check it out alongside much more of their street work on their Instagram and Facebook pages. In early 2017, after working together for 7 years, Hoar and Kor decided to put their professional relationship on hiatus. You can view their solo work via the following pages: Hoar on Instagram and Kor’s Instagram for “Mon chat dans ta ville”.

HoarKor, aussi connus sous le diminutif HRKR, est un duo d’artistes, Hoar et Kor. Ces deux étudiants de l’Université Concordia ont touché à toutes les formes d’art de rue: murales figuratives, graffitis, collages, pochoirs, collants et autocollants, intallations et même le tagging. Ils ont aussi été très prolifiques en studio. Jetez un coup d’oeil à leur pages Instagram et Facebook pour beaucoup plus que ce qui est présenté dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous. Au début de 2017, après 7 années de collaboration, Hoar et Kor ont décidé de commencer à travailler individuellement. Vous pouvez les suivre en solo via les pages de Hoar sur Instagram et le projet “Mon chat dans ta ville” de Kor.
