Scaner

Whether you look at the quality of his work or just the number of his pieces on the walls of our city, Scaner is among Montreal’s top graffiti writers. Although he is known to do outdoors and indoors commissioned work, he is still very active on our streets and back alleys and has managed to retain his street cred and the respect of his peers. His work never (or very rarely) gets vandalised and it is time that eventually gets the better of it (some of the work shown in the image gallery below is more than 10 years old which is almost an eternity in the graffiti world!). He often collaborates with his good friend Axe as well as other members of the various crews he associates with, mainly KG (with Stare and Zek) and DA, and to a lesser degree VC, JKR, TFB, TFO and 156.

Scaner tagQue ce soit par la qualité de son oeuvre ou la quantité de pièces de sa main sur les murs de notre ville, Scaner est sans contredit un des top graffeurs à Montréal. Bien qu’il gagne son pain par du travail commandé (extérieur et intérieur), il est toujours très actif dans nos rues et ruelles et a de ce fait réussi à conserver le respect de ses pairs. Son travail n’est jamais ou très rarement vandalisé et c’est le temps qui à la fin en a raison (à preuve certaines pièces datant plus de 10 ans dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous, du rarement vu). Il collabore fréquemment avec son bon ami Axe ainsi qu’avec d’autres membre des divers crews avec lesquels il s’est associé, principalement KG (avec Stare et Zek) et DA, et dans une moindre mesure VC, JKR, TFB, TFO er 156.
