Pillars of the Van Horne|Rosemont Overpass

In September 2010 the Plateau Mont-Royal borough hired artists to create 6 murals on the pillars supporting the Van Horne|Rosemont overpass, on the East side of St-Laurent. These artists were mostly graffiti writers and street artists from Montreal: Stare, Zek, Axe and Fluke for Ashop, Monk.e, Zema and Frank Lam. In May 2013, the project was re-opened and another bunch of artists were given the contract of covering the pillars on the West side of St-Laurent. This second batch included a mix of graffiti writers as well as street and studio artists: Arpi, Peru Dyer, Sino, Reuben Peter-Finley aka Sbire, Fanny Aishaa, Pito & Guko (credited as Capital P and Charlie Machete) and the Crazy Apes.

En septembre 2010, l’arrondissement Plateau Mont-Royal a fait réaliser 6 murales sur les piliers soutenant le viaduc Van Horne|Rosemont, à l’est de la rue St-Laurent. Les artistes choisis pour la création de cette galerie ‘à ciel ouvert’ étaient principalement des graffeurs et artistes de rue montréalais: Stare, Zek, Axe et Fluke pour Ashop, Monk.e, Zema et Frank Lam. En mai 2013, le projet a été relancé et de nouveaux artistes se sont vus octroyer le contrat de couvrir les piliers se trouvant du côté ouest de St-Laurent. Cette fois-ci la sélection incluait des graffeurs ainsi que des artistes de rue et de studio/atelier: Arpi, Peru Dyer, Sino, Reuben Peter-Finley (Sbire), Fanny Aishaa, Pito & Guko (crédités Capital P et Charlie Machete) et les Crazy Apes.
