Some graffiti from May is already featured in the earlier post titled New graffiti May 2016. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les meilleurs graffitis créés à Montréal au cours de mai et juin 2016 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier (j’ai été absent deux semaines pendant cette période).

Stela

Stela aka Starchild Stela is, in words used on their Facebook page, “a feminist street artist who spreads out radical cute culture”. For much more than what’s found in the image gallery below, have a look at their Instagram page. To learn more about this artist, have a look at this interview for Forget The Box.

Stela, qui travaille aussi sous le pseudo Starchild Stela, est, selon sa page Facebook, une artiste street féministe qui s’emploie à répandre une culture cute mais radicale. Pour beaucoup plus que ce qui se trouve dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous, voir sa page Instagram. Pour en apprendre plus au sujet de Stela, voir cette entrevue publiée chez Forget The Box (en anglais).
