Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2015. It is not necessarily the best of the year because taste is a subjective thing and I was obviously not able to photograph everything. The selection was done partly from my own personal favourites but mostly from those of my followers on Instagram. Of course this list was put together from what I was actually able to photograph, so keep in mind that it may lack some great work that just slipped between the cracks.

The pieces are shown here in alphabetical order of artist/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 murales et autres pièces de street art peint créées en 2015 à Montréal. Cette liste n’a pas la prétention d’être un best of de l’année puisque les goûts sont personnels et je n’ai évidemment pas eu la chance de tout photographier. La sélection s’est faite en partie parmi mes pièces favorites, mais surtout parmi les préférées de mes abonnés Instagram. Cette liste a bien sur été créée à partir de ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et de photographier, ce qui signifie que quelques chef d’oeuvres de 2015 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

Alber left a few masterpieces at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen during his stay in Montreal last summer.

Another one by Alber (bottom right) at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

One of the great new names on the streets this year was Apok from the Astred Collective. This piece, the first I ever encountered by Apok, was found at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Another one by Apok, this one at the abandoned Montreal Hippodrome. The fascinating thing about this artist, besides being obviously incredibly talented, is that he does figurative work but still operates in the usual graffiti spots. As far as I know most if not all of his street work so far has been done alongside that of graffiti artist Eskro (see Retrospective of 2015 graffiti).

Another masterpiece by Apok, this one in the abandoned Transco.

One of the best murals of the year is this huge one done over the summer by Five Eight in the Plateau.

Whilst in town early last summer, Grominator left this piece in Rosemont.

Another early summer production by Grominator, this time in an abandoned building in the South West. Also visible at the bottom of this shot is a piece by Pask.

After having contributed one of the most memorable Mural Festival murals in 2014, Seth returned to Montreal to give us this splendid wall on Papineau.

Whilst in town for some commissioned work, Shalak was invited by Turtle Caps to contribute to this delivery/parking space which was being completely redone by a bunch of great artists (from Montreal and elsewhere). This piece of hers is actually one of my very favourite creations of 2015.

This brilliant piece by Bruno Smoky was done at about the same time as the one above it in this list by his Clandestinos partner Shalak.

Bruno Smoky (right) and Cens (left) came up with this back alley mural in early June. Scroll up this page for more by Cens. The latter artist also made it into the Retrospective of 2015 graffiti.

This mindblowing mural by Stare in the Plateau was also the last mural to be completed in Montreal in 2015.

Before starting on the latter mural Stare also spent many weeks working on this masterpiece between the Plateau and the Quartier des Spectacles.

This was a very busy year for Stare. His first major wall of the year was this one near the Quartier des Spectacles.

This Chinatown mural by Stare features a great piece of deconstructed graffiti calligraphy. Stare is the ultimate urban artist, having placed 4 murals into this list as well as 4 pieces into the Retrospective of 2015 graffiti.

This collective wall was done off-Mural Festival by Montreal artist Stela (above and inside door) with the help of visitors Amanda Valdes (bottom left), Didi aka Diana Contreras (left of door) and Lulu107 (top left). Stela has also made it into the Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art.

Tava took a break from doing street art in 2015 but still accepted a few commissioned door pieces, like the three ones found in this year-end list. This particular one was done in the Plateau with the help of Detto.

This is another Tava / Detto collaboration, but in Little Italy.

One more Tava in Little Italy.

This is a piece by Tchug found in a well-hidden spot in upper Plateau.

Axel Void‘s contribution to the 2015 edition of Mural Festival.

Mural Festival 2014

This post covers the 2014 edition of Mural Festival. For other editions, click on the latter link. You may want to check out this walking tour which I have put together: starting from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, up St-Dominique and the eastern side of St-Laurent then down Clark and the western side of St-Laurent. See also: Google’s Street Art Project feature on the Mural Festival.

Cet article présente les oeuvres produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 du Festival Mural. Pour les autres éditions, cliquez sur ce dernier lien. Vous pourriez être intéressé par ce tour pédestre que j’ai créé: débutant à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, ensuite vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent. A voir aussi: expo sur le Festival Mural par le Google Street Art Project.

2501 from Italy. Unfortunately this wall is only properly visible from a seldom used segment of St-Dominique. The bottom of it was also quickly covered in graffiti (more than what is seen in this photo, which was taken only a few days after the piece was finished).


Mathieu Connery’s sidewalk pieces

For the 2013 edition of the festival, Montreal artist Mathieu Connery painted three pieces in his own abstract and somewhat geometrical style on the sidewalks of St-Laurent. For the 2014 edition, the fading 2013 creations were painted over with new pieces, and seven new ones were added along the St-Laurent axis. Photos in the gallery below that were taken from an elevated position are © Vandalog. The ones taken at ground level are mine.

Dans le cadre de l’édition 2013 du festival, l’artiste montréalais Mathieu Connery a peint sur les trottoirs de la rue St-Laurent trois différentes pièces dans son style abstrait et géométrique. Pour l’édition 2014 du festival, ces dernières ayant été défraichies par l’hiver et la pluie, de nouvelles créations ont été peintes par dessus et sept nouvelles pièces ont été ajoutées le long de l’axe St-Laurent. Les photos aériennes dans la galerie ci-dessous sont © Vandalog. Celles prises au niveau du sol sont miennes.

Returning from Berlin a few years ago I came to the realization that it would be great if Montreal had a street art event to showcase its artists and add life and colour to its walls. I looked into what organising such an event would entail but in those dark ages of the Tremblay administration I quickly lost my motivation. Fortunately, a handful of other people had more determination and perhaps better connections and in 2013 the Mural Festival came to life. The event was an instant success, it draws huge crowds every year and has won great praise and awards.

The Festival has since changed the landscape of the St-Laurent axis between Maisonneuve and St-Joseph. Montreal had a great reputation regarding its street art, but now our city is gradually making its place amongst the best destinations in the world for fans of this art form.

Already the organisers of the Festival have managed to showcase the best of our local talent as well as secure great international artists such as Tristan Eaton, Ron English, Fintan Magee, Onur, Seth, Roa, Cyrcle, Pixel Pancho, Alexis Diaz, Kashink, Bicicleta Sem Freio, Elian, D*Face, Pantone, Buff Monster and Faith47 (to name a few).

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting most Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area. See also: Google’s Street Art Project feature on the Mural Festival.

À mon retour de vacances à Berlin il y a de ça quelques années j’ai réalisé que Montréal avait besoin d’un festival qui donnerait de la visibilité à ses artistes et mettrait de la couleur sur ses murs. J’ai cherché ici et là pour apprendre ce que la création d’un tel événement pouvait demander comme travail mais, en ces jours sombres de l’administration Tremblay, j’ai rapidement perdu ma motivation. Heureusement, un groupe de fanatiques tels que moi ont eu plus de courage et probablement de meilleurs contacts et ressources et en 2013 le Festival Mural est né. L’événement a été un succès immédiat, il attire à chaque année des foules énormes et a reçu de nombreuses critiques positives ainsi que quelques prix.

Le festival a depuis réussi à changer l’allure de l’axe St-Laurent entre les rues Maisonneuve et St-Joseph. Montréal était déjà appréciée pour son street art, mais de plus en plus, grâce en grande partie au Festival Mural, notre ville se taille une place parmi les destinations incontournables auprès des amateurs de cette forme d’art.

Les organisateurs du festival ont déjà réussi à présenter la crème de nos artistes locaux et ont été capables d’aller chercher plusieurs artistes réputés de la scène internationale tels que Tristan Eaton, Ron English, Fintan Magee, Onur, Seth, Roa, Cyrcle, Pixel Pancho, Alexis Diaz, Kashink, Bicicleta Sem Freio, Elian, D*Face, Pantone, Buff Monster et Faith47 (pour n’en nommer que quelques uns).
