Mateo

Mateo – real name Mathieu Bories but also known as Bobo – was born in France but has left a trail of murals around the world, particularly in Latin America as well as in Montreal where he has come to study for 4 years. His work is recognizable by the integration of stencilled elements, particularly to create textures and motifs. His Montreal catalogue includes a good share of walls created for the program Tandem from the Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough.

The photo gallery below only features exterior work done in Montreal. To see what Mateo has created elsewhere or in interior settings, or to see the evolution of his Montreal murals, you can check out mathieubories.com or his Instagram, Flickr and Facebook pages. This article published by Contemporanéité will tell you a bit more about the artist himself. Also very interesting is this photo interview for 7H42.com.

Mateo, de son vrai nom Mathieu Bories mais qui signe parfois du nom de ‘Bobo’, est un artiste d’origine française un peu bohème qui a laissé un grand nombre d’oeuvres murales un peu partout de par le monde, particulièrement en Amérique Latine et à Montréal où il est venu étudier pendant 4 ans. Son style est reconnaissable par les textures et motifs répétés, imprimés à l’aide de pochoir. Ses plus grandes oeuvres à Montréal ont été créées dans le cadre du projet Tandem de l’arrondissement Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous ne présente que les oeuvres extérieures produites à Montréal. Pour ce que Mateo a créé à l’étranger, pour ses oeuvres intérieures, ou pour voir l’évolution des ses murales Montréalaises, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à mathieubories.com, ou à visiter ses pages Instagram, Flickr et Facebook. Cet article publié par Contemporanéité vous permettra d’en apprendre un peu plus sur la démarche de l’artiste. Cette photo entrevue pour 7H42.com est aussi des plus intéressantes.
