New street art and graffiti February-March 2015

Due to the slow arrival of Spring, there isn’t much painted work to report at this point. The bulk of what I found lately are pieces by France’s El Moot Moot who has left his mark in many neighbourhoods of our city, and of course one by Waxhead who is just unstoppable. In the pasted work department (wheatpastes, paste-ups, stickers), the unstoppable one is Futur Lasor Now, and true to his usual self he has treated us to a number of new designs or new variations on familiar themes. The previously mentioned El Moot Moot as well as London’s Mother Superior have also decorated the city’s urban furniture with a significant amount of new stickers.

To make up for the lack of murals and other wall pieces, I have included a selection of great graffiti found on a parked train in the East of the city.

Comme le printemps prends son temps à décoller, il n’y a que très peu de pièces peintes à rapporter ici. La grande majorité de ce que j’ai eu la chance de découvrir est par l’artiste français El Moot Moot qui a laissé son empreinte dans plusieurs quartiers de la ville. La seule autre pièce peinte majeure découverte est par Waxhead que rien ne peut arrêter. Au chapitre des oeuvres collées (collages, stickers, etc), celui qui ne peut être arrêté est Futur Lasor Now et, fidèle à lui-même, il nous a servi une bonne quantité de nouveaux trucs et de nouvelles variations sur des thèmes déjà connus. Le ci-haut mentionné El Moot Moot ainsi que Mother Superior de Londres ont aussi décoré le mobilier urbain d’une grande quantité de leurs stickers.

Pour compenser le manque d’oeuvres peintes majeures, j’ai décidé d’inclure une sélection des meilleurs graffitis découverts sur un train stationné dans l’est de la ville.

The year has barely started and this small house on Duluth was already given its second facelift by Waxhead. Also visible at the top is an older piece by Gawd. Check out the evolution of the house at the latter link, it’s worth it.

small paste-ups and stickers

Futur Lasor Now. This is actually cut vinyl, making the whole thing blend in quite nicely with the tags around.

Above and six below: London’s Mother Superior is in town.

These paste-ups that appear to vary by the stamps in the corners are also by London’s Mother Superior (like the red ‘Hello’ stickers above).

Nustwo aka Nus2 aka Nus II from the ELP Crew has been slapping around town. These two are the more interesting sticker variations.

Both of these are by unidentified artists. Click on image on the left to read the fine print.

After the Paul McCartney paste-ups from a few months ago, here’s a stencil. Artist is unknown.
