Canettes de Ruelle 2021

This image gallery brings together photos of all the pieces created for the 5th edition of Canettes de Ruelle. For this 2021 edition the festival took place in the alleys between 5th and 9th avenues, from Masson to St-Joseph. The gallery below is roughly sorted from west to east, down the 5th/6th alley, up the 6th/7th, down the 7th/8th and up the 8th/9th.

Cette gallerie-photo présente toutes les oeuvres crées dans le contexte de la 5e édition du festival Canettes de Ruelle. Pour cette édition 2021, le festival s’est déroulé dans les ruelles entre la 5e Avenue et la 9e Avenue, de Masson à St-Joseph. La gallerie est ordonnée approximativement d’ouest en est, descendant la ruelle 5e/6e, montant la ruelle 6e/7e, redescendant la 7e/8e et enfin remontant la 8e/9e.

Retrospective of 2021 pasted street art and installations

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2021 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.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2021 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 2020 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.

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.
