Germ Dee

To mark Germ Dee’s participation in the 2019 edition of Mural Festival, here’s a spotlight on his street work.

Germ Dee began painting in the streets of Montreal in the summer of 2016. He immediately became one of the city’s most prolific artists and quickly made friends with many of his local peers. With the exception of his very first few walls, Germ Dee has been mostly taking pop culture characters on his own personal spin, describing his work as ‘visionary bootlegs’.

To view more than Germ Dee’s street work, have a look at his Facebook and Instagram pages. If you can read French, there is an interesting interview with the artist at StoriesMTL. He sells merchandise featuring his art via his Etsy page.

Pour marquer la participation de Germ Dee à l’édition 2019 du Festival Mural, voici un profil-photo de la production street de cet artiste.

Germ Dee a débuté sa carrière montréalaise au cours de l’été 2016. Il est immédiatement devenu un de nos artistes les plus prolifiques, et s’est rapidement lié d’amitié avec plusieurs de ses pairs montréalais. A l’exception de quelques murs au tout début, l’essentiel de sa production consiste en versions ‘personalisées’ de personnages tirés de la culture populaire. Il décrit son art de visionary bootlegs, ce qui se traduirait grosso modo par ‘contrebande visionaire’.

Pour en voir plus que son travail de rue, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram. Une entrevue intéressante avec l’artiste est disponible à StoriesMTL. Enfin, Germ Dee vend ses créations sur Etsy.
