Festival de Canes

Over the weekend of 15-16 July 2017, approximately 40 out of the best of Greater Montreal’s writers and artists were invited by Dose Culture to cover the 2 sides of a highway ramp in Longueuil with their work. The event was titled the Festival de Canes (‘Cans Festival’, a pun on Cannes Festival). Most of the space to be covered was split into sections allotted to various crews. The line-up was curated by Acek.

Au cours de la fin de semaine du 15-16 juillet 2017, environ 40 des meilleurs artistes/graffeurs de la région de Montréal on été invités par Dose Culture pour recouvrir les 2 cotés d’une rampe d’accès du pont Jacques-Cartier, coté Longueuil. Le nom de l’événement, le Festival de Canes, est bien sur un jeu de mot sur Festival de Cannes. La majorité de l’espace de travail a été séparé en sections allouées à divers crews. La sélection des graffeurs a été effectuée par Acek.

Five Eight

To mark the creation of one of this year’s most impressive murals in Montreal, here’s a spotlight on the artist Five Eight.

Five Eight is among this city’s best muralists but he is also known for his unique style of graffiti in which he explores fonts and styles quite different from the various wildstyle roots of the artform. His art is actually often a combination of figurative and letters. As seen in the gallery below, he is often hired for commissioned work, but also shines within the less official realms of street art. For more information, check out five8art.com. To view more work than what is displayed here, including non-Montreal, non-street work and even neon, check out the latter link or Five8’s Instagram, Facebook and Flickr pages.

Pour souligner la création d’une des plus importantes murales de l’année à Montréal, voici un profil de l’artiste Five Eight.

Five Eight fait partie des meilleurs muralistes de Montréal, mais il est aussi reconnu pour son style unique de graffiti où l’artiste explore une calligraphie assez différente du wildstyle traditionnel. Son art est en fait assez souvent une combinaison de figuratif et de lettres. Tel que vu dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous, il reçoit une grande quantité de commandes, mais il est tout de même toujours actif dans les sphères moins officielles de l’art de rue. Pour plus d’information, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil sur five8art.com. Pour voir plus d’oeuvres que ce qui est présenté ici, incluant des créations hors-Montréal, du travail de studio et même du néon, voir ce dernier lien ainsi que les pages Instagram, Facebook et Flickr de l’artiste.

New murals and other painted works August 2015

Here’s a gallery of murals and other smaller painted pieces produced during August 2015. This must have been one of the busiest months in Montreal street art history, I have to split the work I photographed into separate posts presenting pasted works (wheatpastes, paste-ups, stickers, etc.) and recent graffiti. If you wish to see new work as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente une galerie-photo des murales et autres pièces peintes de plus petite envergure produites en août 2015. Ceci a dû être un des mois les plus occupés pour l’art urbain à Montréal. Conséquemment, des articles séparés sont consacrés aux plus récents collages (et autres pièces collées) et aux plus récents graffitis. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

Mural Festival 2015

This article features the new murals created during the 2015 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. Missing is the mural planned by XRAY which was cancelled because of miscommunications with the owner of the wall originally assigned to the artist.

Only four earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Kashink and the 123Klan mural from the 2014 edition, as well as the Omen and Caron murals from the 2013 edition. Last year’s RR & DB wheatpaste mural has since been destroyed by rain and winter; the space was therefore already ready for something new. The Cyrcle mural from 2014 is also gone, that wall had to be rebuilt and it was not yet ready to be covered with a new mural.

You may want to check out this walking tour which I have put together: starting from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, up St-Dominique and the eastern side of St-Laurent then down Clark and the western side of St-Laurent.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2015 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal). Il ne manque que la murale de XRAY qui n’a pas été produite suite à une confusion concernant la disponibilité du mur réservé pour cet artiste.

Seulement 4 murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Kashink et du 123 Klan produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 ainsi que celles d’Omen et de Caron datant de l’édition 2013. La murale avec collage par RR & DB datant de l’an dernier était déjà détruite par la pluie et l’hiver. Cet espace était donc déjà disponible pour recevoir une nouvelle oeuvre. La murale de Cyrcle produite l’année dernière est aussi disparue, mais elle n’a pas été remplacée, le mur étant en cours de réparation.

Vous pourriez être intéressé par ce tour pédestre que j’ai créé: débutant à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, ensuite vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

Mathieu Connery sidewalk pieces

Mathieu Connery has been painting his abstract pieces on the sidewalks of St-Laurent since the first edition of Mural Festival. This year he came up with two new pieces and restored a few of the ones from last year which had faded. Then, over the weeks following the end of the festival, he transformed a few of the fading 2014 creations.

Mathieu Connery a peint un certain nombre de pièces abstraites sur les trottoirs de St-Laurent pour chaque édition du Festival Mural. Cette année il a créé deux nouvelles pièces et rafraichit certaines de l’an dernier qui étaient en voie de disparaitre. Dans les semaines qui ont suivi la tenue du festival, il a adapté quelques pièces de 2014 qui étaient en voie de disparaître.

Scaner

On 9 September 2017 the Montreal graffiti community lost one of its greatest writers, a “king” to use an expression from that world. The news of the death of the artist working under the aliases of Alex Scaner, Scaner or simply Scan, following a long battle with cancer, spread like wildfire.

In his mid-thirties, Scaner was one of Montreal’s first great graffiti artists. In the days following his death, hundreds of writers from Montreal and around the world as well as many street artists took to social media to pay homage and to express their respect for their brother, their chief, their king, the one who had been such a great influence on their own artistic development.

Scaner, alongside his brothers in the KG, DA and TFB crews (to name just a few), has helped shape the Montreal graffiti scene, give it its style and make it shine outside Montreal. Internationally known, he has worked alongside many of the greatest names of Canadian, American and European graffiti. He has also invited many of the best international writers to Montreal, thus creating networks for himself and his artistic family.

In just 20 years, this prolific artist has created hundreds, even thousands of burners, throws and tags. Given the ephemeral nature of the artform many are now gone but, thanks to the internet, they will live on and continue to influence the upcoming generations of graffiti artists. Only time and the elements will gradually chip away at what is left of his art in our streets, alleys, parks, offices, businesses and abandoned buildings, as the artist commands so much respect within the world of graffiti that no one would dare go over his work.

History will remember Scaner. When the negative taboos associated with the vandal origins of this artform drop and art historians study the artists who will have defined our era, Scaner will be remembered as the one who was taken too soon, but still left an immeasurable legacy.

The local and international artistic communities did not wait for Scaner’s passing to recognize his influence and express their love and respect. After the news broke out in the Spring of 2017 that the artist hadn’t much time left, his closest crewmates and friends got together and organized tribute productions (such as Scan You Rock). As well, hundreds of pieces created in Montreal, Toronto, New York, Barcelona, etc. have since been dedicated to him.

Following his departure tributes have been coming in even greater numbers. Scaner may be gone, but his star will go on shining brighter and brighter…

For more information on Scaner and for more photos of his work, check out his personal webpage as well as Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr.

Scaner tagLe 9 septembre 2017 la scène montréalaise du graffiti perdait un géant, un king, pour utiliser un terme du milieu. La nouvelle du décès de l’artiste connu sous les pseudonymes d’Alex Scaner, de Scaner ou Scan, suite à une longue bataille contre le cancer, s’est répandue comme une onde de choc.

Dans la mi-trentaine, l’artiste était un des premiers très grands noms du graffiti à Montréal. Les jours suivant son décès, des centaines de graffeurs montréalais et internationaux ainsi que plusieurs artistes du milieu du street art sont sortis dans les médias sociaux pour affirmer leur amour, leur respect et leur désarroi face à la perte de leur frère, de leur chef, de leur king, de celui qui avait été une de leurs plus grandes influences.

Scaner, aux côtés de ses frères dans les crews KG, DA ou TFB pour n’en nommer que quelques uns, a contribué à façonner la scène montréalaise du graffiti, à lui donner son style et la faire rayonner hors de Montréal. De notoriété internationale, il a exercé son art aux côtés des plus grands du monde du graff canadien, américain et européen. Il a aussi invité de nombreux graffeurs d’ailleurs à Montréal, établissant de ce fait de nombreux contacts et réseaux pour sa famille artistique.

En tout juste 20 ans, l’artiste prolifique a créé des centaines, voire des milliers de burners, de throws, de tags. Étant donnée la nature éphémère de cette forme d’art plusieurs de ces pièces sont maintenant disparues mais, grâce à l’internet, elles continueront d’influencer les générations de graffeurs à venir. Et il ne fait pas de doute que seul le temps et le climat auront raison de ce qui reste de sa main dans nos rues, ruelles, parcs, bureaux, commerces et édifices abandonnés, puisque l’artiste commande un tel respect que personne du milieu n’oserait repasser sur ses oeuvres.

L’histoire se rappellera de Scaner. Quand les préjugés négatifs dûs aux origines vandales de cette forme d’expression artistique tomberont et que les historiens d’art s’intéresseront aux artistes qui auront marqué notre époque, on se rappellera de Scaner comme celui qui est parti trop tôt mais qui a tout de même laissé un legs immense.

La communauté artistique locale et internationale n’a pas attendu son départ pour reconnaître son influence et lui exprimer son amour et son respect. Depuis que la nouvelle s’est répandue au printemps 2017 qu’il ne lui restait que très peu de temps, elle s’est mobilisée et a mis sur pieds quelques méga-productions (telles que Scan You Rock) en son honneur. De plus, des centaines de pièces créées par ses pairs à Montréal, Toronto, New York, Barcelone, etc., lui ont été dédiées.

Et depuis son départ ces hommages se sont multipliés. Scaner n’est plus, mais son étoile continuera de briller de plus en plus…
