Canettes de Ruelle Festival

The Canettes de Ruelle Festival was created as a counterpart to the big international urban art festivals that are Mural Festival and Under Pressure. It takes place in residential back alleys in Rosemont and is very family- and community-oriented. Canettes de Ruelle is not a big touristy event but rather a big neighbourhood jam bringing together artists with the community living around the alleys where it takes place.

The festival aims to promote artistic freedom and features many emerging or more radical artists on its programme alongside some better known graffiti and street artists in the city. As it grows, it also aims at being more inclusive, giving priority to black, indigenous and other people of color, and to female and non-binary artists.

Canettes de Ruelle takes place every year in early September around labor day. The first edition happened in 2017. It was actually called Alleycats (aka Chats de Ruelle or Gatos Callejeros) that first year, and became Canettes de Ruelle from its second edition in September 2018.

Canettes de Ruelle Instagram

Le festival Canettes de Ruelle a été créé en tant qu’alternative aux grands festivals internationaux d’art urbain que sont Festival Mural et Under Pressure. Il a lieu dans les ruelles résidentielles du quartier Rosemont et est plus orienté vers les familles et la communauté que Mural ou Under Pressure. Contrairement à ces derniers, il n’est pas un gros événement touristique, mais plutôt un gros jam rassemblant des artistes locaux et les résidents du quartier.

Le festival a pour but de promouvoir la liberté artistique et inclut sur son programme plusieurs artistes émergent et radicaux aux cotés d’artistes de graffiti ou de street art plus établis. De plus, alors qu’il croit en importance, il vise à devenir plus inclusif et s’assure de donner priorité aux artistes noirs, autochtones ou de couleur, ainsi qu’aux femmes et aux personnes non-binaires.

Canettes de Ruelle a lieu chaque année au début de septembre, autour de la fête du travail. La première édition a eu lieu en 2017. Cette première édition s’appelait en fait Chats de Ruelle (ou Alleycats ou Gatos Callejeros), le festival est devenu Canettes de Ruelle à partir de sa seconde édition en 2018.

Under Pressure Festival 2021

Here’s a photo gallery featuring all the works produced during the 2021 edition of the Under Pressure Festival. As in 2020, walls were not all painted on the same weekend because of social restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Most of the walls were painted over a few weeks in August. For other editions, see the general Under Pressure Festival page.

Cet article-photo présente les oeuvres produites au cours de l’édition 2021 du Festival Under Pressure. Tout comme en 2020, les murs n’ont pas été peints au cours de la même fin de semaine dans le but de respecter les restrictions sociales découlant de la pandémie de Covid-19. Ceci étant dit, la majorité des murs ont été peints en août. Pour les autres éditions, voir la page générale du Festival Under Pressure.

Mural Festival 2021

The 2021 edition of Mural Festival, held from 12 to 22 August, was unfortunately less about the murals and more about shows and concerts. Publicity about the event was geared mostly towards these paying events and not much about the visual art and artists.

For the first time since the beginning of the festival, no murals were done on site for people coming to see artists at work, except for Birdo’s in the VIP area, which was only accessible to paying visitors. The only other mural of this edition was the one designed by Teddy Kelly and executed by Jamie Janx, Arnold and William Marceau-Briggs two months after the festival. The Hotel St-Germain downtown had its front painted by Michelle Hoogveld a few weeks before the festival. The ground of a basketball court in Little Italy was painted by Francorama also some time before the event took place.

The other artists on the bill were hired for non-street art creations, such as Marie-Pier Primeau who painted the walls of a private gym’s pool. The talents of Julian Palma Luque, Garbage Beauty’s Monsieur Boz and Zoe Gelfant were unfortunately wasted on painting sponsored bars, picnic tables and furniture in and around the paying zone instead of murals.

The great aspect of the 2021 edition was Mural’s incursion into virtual public art, with famous local street artists Waxhead and Cryote as well as Samuel Arsenault-Brassard and Iregular. They created virtual pieces only visible through the festival’s app. Cryote also virtually created pieces live as they were being projected on a screen for the guests in the paying area to see.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

L’édition 2021 du Festival Mural, tenue du 12 au 22 août, a été malheureusement axée sur les spectacles et concerts plutôt que les murales. D’ailleurs, la publicité de l’événement mettaient principalement de l’avant le programme d’événements payants tels que ces concert et très peu les artistes visuels.

Pour la première fois depuis la création du festival les visiteurs n’ont pas pu voir d’artistes à l’oeuvre créant leur murale, sauf celle de Birdo dans la section VIP, mais celle-ci était inaccessible sans payer. La seule autre murale de l’édition 2021 a été celle conçue par Teddy Kelly et exécutée deux mois plus tard par Jamie Janx, Arnold Vincent et William Marceau-Briggs. L’Hôtel Germain au centre-ville a été repeint par Michelle Hoogveld quelques semaines avant le début du festival. Le sol d’un terrain de basketball de la Petite Italie a aussi été peint par Francorama quelques temps avant la tenue du festival.

Les autres artistes prévus au programme n’ont pas été engagés pour du street art. Marie-Pier Primeau a peint les murs d’une piscine d’un gym privé. Les talents de Julian Palma Luque, Monsieur Boz de Garbage Beauty et Zoe Gelfant ont malheureusement été gaspillés à peindre des murets de bars et des tables de picnic dans la zone payante ou devant celle-ci, plutôt que des murales.

Un bon coup des organisateurs du festival a été l’ajout d’un nouveau volet virtuel grâce à la participation des artistes Waxhead et Cryote, tous deux bien connus dans le milieu du street art montréalais, ainsi que Samuel Arsenault-Brassard et Iregular. Ces artistes ont créé des pièces virtuelles seulement visible via l’application du festival. Cryote a aussi créé des oeuvres virtuelles live, projetées sur un écran pour les visiteurs dans la section payante du festival.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.


This awesome mural by Toronto’s Birdo was the only one done during the festival, unfortunately only visible to paying users during its creation.

This building front was designed by Teddy Kelly and executed in October following the festival by Jamie Janx, Arnold Vincent and William Marceau-Briggs.

This installation by June Barry served as an entrance through which paying visitors could access the VIP area.

Michelle Hoogveld painted the front of the Hotel Germain before the beginning of the festival.

Also on the 2021 Mural Festival bill:
– Marie-Pier Primeau painted the walls of the pool area of a private gym.
– Drew Young was meant to paint another downtown hotel, but this seems to have been canceled.
Monsieur Boz from Garbage Beauty was also on the bill, it is unclear if he has ended up painting for the festival or not.
Waxhead, Cryote, Samuel Arsenault-Brassard and Iregular created virtual art.

Canettes de Ruelle 2020

This image gallery brings together photos of all the pieces created for the 4th edition of Canettes de Ruelle. Because of the restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this 2020 edition was on a much smaller scale than the ones that came before it. Most of the walls painted in 2020 were in the alley south of Masson, between 5th and 6th avenues.

Cette gallerie-photo présente toutes les oeuvres créées dans le contexte de la 4e édition du festival Canettes de Ruelle. A cause des restrictions découlant de la pandémie de Covid-19, l’édition 2020 s’est déroulée à une plus petite échelle que les éditions précédentes. La plupart des murs peints en 2020 se trouvaient dans la ruelle sud de Masson, entre la 5e et la 6e Avenue.

The 203 crew’s contribution to the previous year’s edition of the festival was slightly tweaked with addition of Cler (bottom right) to the previous year’s line-up of Ekes, Borrris, Lyfer, Algue and Flying Eric. This wall is also out of the 2020 festival zone, it is two blocks East in the alley south of Masson between 7th and 8th avenues.

Mural Festival 2020

This article features the new murals created during the 2020 edition of Mural Festival as well as the other temporary art found on the site (St-Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mont-Royal) while it was closed to traffic for a few weeks in August. Because of restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, this edition was a limited one, with walls executed one after the other over the length of summer, and without parties or events that would have brought people in proximity to one another.

Four earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the Miss Van and PichiAvo creations from the 2019 edition, the Sandra Chevrier wall from the 2018 edition as well as the Curiot one from the 2015 edition.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2020 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) lorsque celui-ci était piétonnisé pendant quelques semaine en août. A cause des restrictions dues à la pandémie de Covid-19, l’édition 2020 était limitée. Les murales ont été exécutées l’une après l’autre au cours de l’été au complet, et il n’y a pas eu d’événement pour le public autrement qu’en virtuel.

Quatre murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Miss Van et de PichiAvo de l’édition 2019, l’oeuvre de Sandra Chevrier datant de 2018 ainsi que le mur de Curiot créé en 2015.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.


the murals

Here are the 6 murals done for the 2020 edition, in order of completion.

Voici les 6 murales créées pour l’édition 2020, en ordre chronologique.

The first mural of the 2020 edition was completed at the very beginning of July. It was painted by Jeremy Shantz from a design by FvckRender.

This mural by Ankh One was complete in mid-August. Original throws by Cheeto and Listen were preserved at the base of the wall as Ankh painted above them.

Denial completed his Black Lives Matter tribute in mid-August.

Marc-Olivier Lamothe completed his wall in late August.

This is a beautiful tribute by Patrick Forchild to health workers who were at the forefront of the fight against the Covid-19 virus. It was painted on a wall of the Jewish General Hospital and completed near the end of August.

Burnt Toast‘s wall was completed at the very end of August.
