Transco – 2nd and 3rd floors

More big rooms were found on the complex’s 2nd and 3rd floors. Even though these seem to have served a different purpose than the coloured warehouses downstairs, as far as we are concerned, the quality of the work found in these rooms is the same.

See also:

D’autres grandes pièces se trouvaient aux 2e et 3e étages. Bien que la vocation de celles-ci semble avoir été différente de celle des grandes salles au niveau du sol, en ce qui nous concerne, la qualité des pièces qu’on y trouve est la même.

the 203 ballroom

This rather small room with a red carpet may have just been an entrance hall. The carpet seems to have inspired Algue and his mates to come up with this festive theme.

the piano room

This room, which featured very little graffiti, was particularly loved by urbex photographers because of the unexpected presence of an old piano.

the machinery room

This was a large room, but most of it was rather dark and offered very little wall space good enough for graffiti. Some of material shown below was actually found inside small adjoining rooms.

Cette pièce était plutôt grande mais peu lumineuse et n’offrait que très peu d’espace intéressant pour y faire du graffiti. Certaines des oeuvres montrées dans cette section ont en fait été trouvées dans de petites pièces attenantes.

Janek’s backroom

This room was only accessible from the outside and wasn’t visited by graffers and photographers until late winter when the demolition teams made a hole in a wall of the orange room (in the middle of Janek’s piece, hence the name I found for this section) to access it from the inside.

Cette pièce était inaccessible autrement que par l’extérieur et est demeurée inconnue des graffeurs et photographes jusqu’à la fin de l’hiver quand les équipes de démolition ont créé une ouverture dans un mur de la pièce orange (dans le milieu de l’oeuvre de Janek) pour y accéder de l’intérieur.

New graffiti December 2015

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during December 2015. Of course, even though this post is huge, it is just a fraction of what was produced in this city during that time – it is the best of what I was lucky enough to catch. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Lachine graffiti jam

The 2015 edition of the Lachine graffiti jam happened during the final weekend of August. As usual the event brought together many of this city’s finest writers to do their thing on the half-wall they had been allotted. Here’s a rundown of the new works created this year.

L’édition 2015 du jam graffiti de Lachine s’est déroulée au cours de la dernière fin de semaine d’août. Comme à chaque année, l’événement a réuni plusieurs des meilleurs artistes de Montréal. Chacun a créé une pièce sur le demi-mur qui leur avait été alloué. Voici un compte-rendu photo des créations de cette année.
