This post is a photo gallery of tributes to Scaner that have appeared in Montreal and Miami since the writer passed away on 9 September 2017. Most of the creations are by writers doing Scan’s name, but I also found a few street art/figurative pieces celebrating Montreal’s graffiti king.
Artists did not wait for Scaner to be gone before celebrating him. A section at the end of this post features pieces honouring him after the news came out that he was terminally ill.
Voici une gallerie-photo d’hommages à Scaner trouvés à Montréal et Miami depuis le décès de ce dernier le 9 septembre 2017. La majorité des créations sont par des graffeurs écrivant le nom de Scaner, mais j’ai aussi trouvé quelques pièces de street art et autres pièces figuratives célébrant celui que la communauté Montréalaise du graff appelle son ‘king’.
Certains artistes n’ont pas attendu le départ de Scaner pour le célébrer. Une section au bas de cet article présente des pièces en son honneur créées après que la nouvelle se soit répandue qu’il ne lui restait que peu de temps.
