Mural Festival 2017

This article features the new murals created during the 2017 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 from June 8th to 18th.

Seven earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Meggs and the Pantone mural from the 2016 edition, the Nychos, Melissa del Pinto and Eric Clément murals from the 2015 edition, and the Squid Called Sebastian and Astro/La Paria ones from the 2013 edition. The A’Shop mural on Napoleon, which is older than the festival, was also covered to make space for a new one.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2017 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement du 8 au 18 juin.

Sept murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Meggs et de Pantone de l’édition 2016, les murales de Nychos, de Melissa del Pinto et d’Eric Clément produites pour l’édition 2015 ainsi que celles de A Squid Called Sebastian et d’Astro/La Pariadatant de l’édition 2013. La murale d’A’Shop sur Napoleon, datant d’avant le Festival, a aussi été recouverte par une nouvelle création.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.

Joe Iurato’s sidewalk pieces

Following Mathieu Connery and Jason Botkin, in 2017 it was Joe Iurato who supplied the sidewalk pieces for Mural Festival. He did eight in total, all on St-Laurent between Milton and Mont-Royal.

Après Mathieu Connery et Jason Botkin, en 2017 c’était au tour de Joe Iurato de créer les pièces de trottoir pour le Festival Mural. Il en créé huit, toutes sur St-Laurent entre Milton et Mont-Royal.


Cryote’s installations in Parc du Portugal

Cryote was commissioned to create eight ‘sculptures’ (actually installations made from painted wood cutouts) in Parc du Portugal where activities were held all throughout the festival.

Cryote a créé huit ‘sculptures’ (en fait des intallations faites de pièces de bois peintes) qui ont été installées au Parc du Portugal où des activités étaient organisées au cours de la durée du festival.


information/ad boards

Every year the backs of the Festival’s many information and advertisement boards are painted by a selection of mostly local artists, a great way to showcase a lot of additional Montreal talent.

A chaque année le revers des panneaux d’information et de publicité du Festival sont peints par divers artistes locaux, une excellent initiative permettant de présenter une grande quantité de talent montréalais.

‘your face here’ boards

The Festival increased the number of ‘your face here’ boards this year for kids and adults to interact with the art. Just like the info/ad boards above, these are great canvases for local artists to show their craft during the festival.

Cetta année le festival a augmenté le nombre de panneaux dans lesquels les enfants et adultes peuvent insérer leur visage et se prendre en photo. Tout comme les revers de panneaux d’information et publicitaires ci-dessus, ces panneaux permettent à des artistes locaux de montrer leur talent pendant la durée du festival.

Rouks

Rouks is a multi-talented artist working on both sides of the urban art spectrum. On one hand he excels at portraits, he is actually earning his place among this city’s best portraitists. On the other he also shines as a graffiti writer alongside his mates in the Nextime Crew. My favourite works of his is when he brings the two together, doing letters with a side of figurative work. The image gallery below is therefore split into sections showing the murals he did or contributed to, his smaller figurative work, his graffiti work, and those special pieces combining letters and portraits.

To see more by Rouks than what is found below, check out his Instagram and Facebook pages.

Rouks est un artiste aux multiples talents touchant aux deux cotés du spectrum d’art urbain. D’une part il est un excellent portraitiste en train de se tailler une place parmi les meilleurs de Montréal. D’autre part, il brille aussi comme writer de pièces de graffiti aux cotés de ses amis dans le Nextime Crew. La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est donc divisée en sections montrant les murales qu’il a effectuées ou auxquelles il a contribué, ses plus petites pièces figuratives, ses pièces de graffiti, et ma section préférée comprenant ses pièces jumelant lettres et figuratif.

Pour en voir plus que ce qui se trouve ci-dessous, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Instagram et Facebook.

Top 100 pasted street art of 2016

This image gallery brings together 100 of the best pasted street art (wheatpastes, stickers, woodups, mosaics, etc) of 2016 in Montreal. The selection was done from my own personal favourites as well as those of my followers on Instagram. Of course this list was put together from what I was actually able to photograph, so keep in mind that it may lack some great work that just slipped between the cracks.

It was a rather quiet year for stickers. Many of our slappers were out of town for extended periods of time or were just busy with work and the rest of their life. Also, the city was more quick in removing and painting over stickers. Meanwhile, the medium of wheatpasting was more popular than before, particularly during the period of May to July. Consequently, the list this year features many more wheatpastes and fewer stickers than before.

It was already difficult selecting 100 pieces, it is impossible to sort them in order of preference, so they are shown here in alphabetical order. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few much-loved artists, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 des meilleures oeuvres de street art collé (collages, autocollants, wood-ups, mosaiques, etc) de 2016 à Montréal. La sélection inclut mes pièces préférées ainsi que celles des gens qui me suivent sur Instagram. Cette liste a bien sur été créée à partir de ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et de photographier, ce qui signifie que quelques chef d’oeuvres de 2016 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

2016 a été une année tranquille pour les autocollants. Plusieurs de nos artistes s’adonnant à ce medium ont été absents une bonne partie de l’année et d’autres étaient occupés à autre chose. De plus, la ville s’est donnée en 2016 une politique plus aggressive contre cette forme d’expression artistique. Entre-temps, beaucoup d’artistes locaux se sont mis aux collages et plusieurs colleurs étrangers sont passés par Montréal, particulièrement de mai à juillet. Conséquemment, cette année cette liste inclut beaucoup plus de collages et moins d’autocollants que d’habitude.

C’était déjà trop difficile de choisir 100 pièces, je n’ai pas été en mesure de les présenter en ordre de préférence et elles apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique. Pour que cette liste ne soit pas accaparée par quelques artistes préférés, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne.

New street art May 2016

Here’s a photo gallery of the new street art having appeared on the streets of Montreal during May 2016. I am aware that at the time this post is published there is still one week left in the month of May, but I will be out of town on vacation for the rest of the month. Whatever else I find after I return will be added to this gallery if I know that it was done in May. The post is split into sections covering painted pieces, pasted pieces, wood-ups, stickers, and ‘other’. Graffiti done in Montreal during the same period is covered in a separate post. If you want to see new Montreal street art and graffiti as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les nouveautés street art apparues dans les rues de Montréal au cours du mois de mai 2016. Je suis conscient qu’il reste encore une semaine au mois de mai, mais je serai à l’extérieur de la ville en vacances jusqu’à la fin du mois. Suite à mon retour, ce que je trouverai qui aura été fait en mai sera ajouté à cette gallerie. L.article est séparé en cinq sections: oeuvres peintes, collages, oeuvres en bois (wood-ups), autocollants, et ‘autre’. Les pièces de graffiti créées au cours de la même période sont présentées dans un article à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres de street art ou de graffiti aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.
