Mural Festival 2022

The 2022 edition of Mural Festival saw a return to near-normal following two editions downscaled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This article features the new murals created during this 2022 edition, as well as the other temporary art found on the site (St-Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mont-Royal) while it was closed to traffic from June 9th to 19th.

Six earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones in 2022. These are the Marc-Olivier Lamothe mural from the 2020 edition, Germ Dee’s from the 2019 edition, Waxhead’s from the 2018 edition, Mono Sourcil’s as well as Jason Wasserman’s murals from the 2017 edition, and finally Stare and Tchug’s collaboration from the 2013 edition. In the latter case, the wall had undergone renovations the previous year which had caused the disappearance of the mural.

L’édition 2022 du Festival Mural a vu un retour à la normale (ou presque) après deux éditions à échelle réduite en raison de la pandémie de Covid-19.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées lors de cette édition 2022, ainsi que les autres œuvres d’art temporaires retrouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) alors qu’il était fermé à la circulation du 9 au 19 juin.

Six anciennes murales du Festival ont été remplacées par de nouvelles en 2022. Il s’agit de la murale de Marc-Olivier Lamothe de l’édition 2020, celle de Germ Dee de l’édition 2019, celle de Waxhead de l’édition 2018, celle de Mono Sourcil ainsi que celle de de Jason Wasserman de l’édition 2017, et enfin la collaboration de Stare et Tchug datant de l’édition 2013. Dans ce dernier cas, le mur avait subi des rénovations l’année précédente qui avaient causé la disparition de la murale.
