Help fund a commemorative mural in honour of Scaner

Money is currently being raised to fund a commemorative mural in honour of Alex Scaner aka SCAN who passed away last year following a long battle with cancer. The huge 7250 square foot mural will be visible from one of MTL’s busiest highways. All 30 artists involved will be contributing their time for free, but $10 000 are needed to help finance the rental of aerial work platforms, scaffolding, safety equipment as well as for paint and transportation for artists.

If you are a regular at wall2wallMTL.com, Scaner needs no introduction. He has helped define the MTL graffiti and urban art scenes and his influence and respect extends way beyond the limits of our city. He was also known and loved for his great generosity and now the community has decided to return the love and honour the memory of its lost brother.

Une collecte de fonds est présentement en cours dans le but de financer une murale commémorative en l’honneur d’Alex Scaner / SCAN qui est décédé l’an dernier suite à une longue bataille avec le cancer. L’énorme murale de 7250 pieds carrés sera visible du nouvel échangeur Turcot, une des routes les plus achalandées de MTL. Les 30 artistes impliqués dans le project contribueront leur temps gratuitement, mais $10 000 sont nécessaires pour la réalisation du projet, en l’occurrence la location de plate-formes mobiles, des échafaudages, des équipements de sécurité ainsi que pour la peinture et le transports d’artistes.

Si vous êtes un régulier de Montréal Mur à Mur, Scaner n’a pas besoin d’introduction. Il a fortement contribué à définir la scène montréalaise du graff et de l’art urbain et son influence et le respect qu’il génère dépassent largement les bornes de notre ville. Il était aussi connu et aimé pour sa grande générosité et maintenant c’est au tour de la communauté de lui retourner son amour en honorant la mémoire de son frère perdu.
