Mullins

Behind the building with the legal wall, on Mullins street, is found another wall where graffiti seems to be tolerated. This wall separates a basketball court from a park and is painted on both sides.

Sur la rue Mullins derrière l’édifice offrant le mur légal se trouve un autre petit mur où les graffitis semblent tolérés. Ce mur sépare un terrain de basketball du parc adjacent et est peint des deux côtés.

New street art and graffiti March-April 2015

Here’s a feature on new works that have popped up on our streets in April, plus a few from March that I had missed in my last ‘new works’ post. With the long-awaited arrival of favourable weather conditions, we finally saw the return of many of our best and better known artists. It’s still a bit early for large murals, but we have been treated to some new painted pieces (figurative and lots of graffiti) as well as some wheatpastes and lots of stickers.

Cet article présente les nouvelles créations apparues dans nos rues en avril, plus quelques unes datant de mars qui ont échappé à mon dernier article couvrant les nouvelles oeuvres. Avec l’arrivée tant attendue de conditions météo favorables, nos meilleurs artistes ont enfin repris le travail. Il est encore un peu tôt pour la création de grandes murales, mais nous avons découvert un bon nombre de nouvelles pièces peintes (figuratives ou graffiti) ainsi que des collages et évidemment énormément d’autocollants.


Painted pieces

Waxhead at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen

Another (the 3rd) El Moot Moot piece was done in the infamous alley between St-Laurent and Clark. This French artist has taken over our streets and alleys lately with a few dozens of his creature (see my New Works February-March 2015 post).


Wood-ups

XRAY is off to a great start for 2015 with a handful of painted wood cut-outs installed here and there in the central neighbourhoods of Montreal. The themes are familiar ones from his iconography and the very brightly coloured pieces were installed over drab backgrounds to make them stand out even more. Waxhead and Starkey had given us a handful of wood-ups last autumn and winter and in April they collaborated again and gave us a few more joint creations, again very bright splashes of colour over dull backgrounds.

XRAY connait un super début de saison 2015 avec l’installation de cinq pièces de bois peintes dans divers quartiers de Montréal. Les pièces en question présentent des thèmes familiers de l’iconographie de XRAY, elles sont peintes de couleurs très vibrantes et installées sur des supports de couleur terne pour en accentuer l’impact. Waxhead et Starkey, qui nous avaient présenté une poignée de pièces de bois taillées et peintes au cours de l’automne et l’hiver dernier, ont renoué leur collaboration et nous ont servi quelques nouvelles pièces de leur cru. Encore une fois celles-ci ajoutent une touche très colorée sur des décors en manque de vie.

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.
