Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2016 that were created in a studio, then pasted, glued, screwed in or cemented into a public place. 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 name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular artists, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per person. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

It was a rather quiet year for stickers. Many of our slappers were out of town for extended periods of time or were just busy with work and the rest of their life. Also, the city was more quick in removing and painting over stickers. Meanwhile, the medium of wheatpasting was more popular than before, particularly during the period of May to July. Consequently, the list this year features many more wheatpastes and fewer stickers than before.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2016 à Montréal, créées en studio avant d’être collées, vissées ou fixées dans le ciment dans un endroit public. 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 2016 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

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

2016 a été une année tranquille pour les autocollants. Plusieurs de nos artistes s’adonnant à ce medium ont été absents une bonne partie de l’année et d’autres étaient occupés à autre chose. De plus, la ville s’est donnée en 2016 une politique plus aggressive contre cette forme d’expression artistique. Entre-temps, beaucoup d’artistes locaux se sont mis aux collages et plusieurs colleurs étrangers sont passés par Montréal, particulièrement de mai à juillet. Conséquemment, cette année cette liste inclut beaucoup plus de collages et moins d’autocollants que d’habitude.

New street art April 2016

Here’s a photo gallery of the new street art having appeared on the streets of Montreal during April 2016. The post is split into sections covering painted pieces, pasted pieces, stickers, and ‘other’. Graffiti done in Montreal during the same period is covered in a separate post. If you want to see new Montreal street art and graffiti as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les nouveautés street art apparues dans les rues de Montréal au cours d’avril 2016. Il est séparé en quatre sections: oeuvres peintes, collages, autocollants, et ‘autre’. Les pièces de graffiti créées au cours de la même période sont présentées dans un article à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres de street art ou de graffiti aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

St-Laurent|Clark back alley between Laurier and St-Viateur

The back alley that runs behind the western side of St-Laurent is one of Montreal’s great hotspots for commissioned and non-commissioned street art. Two stretches of that alley are particularly interesting: the one from Duluth to Des Pins (subject of a different post) and the one from Laurier to St-Viateur which is covered here. Some of this city’s greatest artists have left their mark there in the form of murals, smaller figurative pieces, graffiti, wheatpastes, stencils and of course the unavoidable stickers.

Each segment of the alley has a different feel, so this post is divided accordingly: Laurier to Fairmount, Fairmount to St-Viateur, and above St-Viateur. Pieces were photographed from the summer of 2014 to the summer of 2016.

La ruelle se trouvant derrière le coté ouest de la rue St-Laurent est une des meilleures galeries à ciel ouvert à Montréal. Deux portions de cette ruelle sont particulièrement intéressantes: celle comprise entre Duluth et Des Pins (le sujet d’un article à part) et celle comprise entre les rues Laurier et St-Viateur, que nous traitons ici. Plusieurs parmi les meilleurs artistes à Montréal y ont laissé leur marque (commandée ou non) sous forme de murales et pièces figuratives de plus petite envergure, graffitis, collages, pochoirs, et évidemment les inévitables autocollants.

La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est divisée en chapitres reflétant le caractère différent de chaque segment de cette ruelle: Laurier à Fairmount, Fairmount à St-Viateur, et nord de St-Viateur. Les pièces présentées ont été photographiées de l’été 2014 à l’été 2016.

ROC514

ROC514 is mostly recognised for a cute round bird which can be found pasted all over Montreal. This bird has been seen in a variety of colours and patterns. The bigger varieties are usually made of pasted paper while the smaller ones come as stickers. Some have also been found painted and drawn. The artist often collaborates with other street artists and graffiti writers, a section of the photo gallery below features these collaborations.

ROC514 left Montreal for BC in 2017, but many specimens of her work are still found in the streets and alleys of Montreal. I expect she will keep a presence in our city through visits as well as the collaboration of many artists/friends who will put up her stickers. She did keep the ‘514’ in her name after all!

For more on ROC514, have a look at her Facebook and Instagram pages. You can buy ROC514 art and sticker packs at Storenvy.

ROC514 est surtout connue pour un petit oiseau dodu collé un peu partout dans plusieurs quartiers de Montréal. L’oiseau en question existe en de nombreuses couleurs et textures. Les plus grands spécimens sont sous forme de collages tandis que les plus petits se trouvent sous forme d’autocollants. Des spécimens ont aussi été aperçus peints ou dessinés. L’artiste aime aussi collaborer avec d’autres artistes et graffeurs, une section de la galerie-photo ci-dessous présente le fruit de ces collaborations.

ROC514 a quitté Montréal en 2017 lorsqu’elle est déménagée en Colombie Britannique, mais de nombreux specimens de sa création sont toujours présents dans nos rues et ruelles. On peut s’attendre à une présence maintenue via des visites régulières et la collaboration d’artistes et d’amis d’ici qui continueront à distribuer ses autocollants. Elle a tout de même conservé le ‘514’ dans son nom après tout!

Pour en voir plus par ROC514, voir ses pages Facebook et Instagram. Il est possible d’acheter des créations de ROC514 via Storenvy.
