The second edition of the Estival de Canes (formerly known as the Festival de Canes) was held July 6-8, 2018 in Longueuil. This year the site of the festival was the Parc de la Cité in St-Hubert. This new edition was again curated by Acek and about 25 artists from the greater Montreal participated, mostly from the crews 203, Crazy Apes, K6A, Next Time, RCD and of course Acek’s N2N.

Top 100 murals and other painted street art of 2017

This image gallery brings together 100 of the best murals and other painted street art pieces of 2017 in Montreal. The selection was done partly from my own personal favourites but mostly from 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 already difficult selecting 100 ceations, it was 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 very popular artists, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 des meilleures murales et autres pièces de street art peint de 2017 à Montréal. La sélection inclut mes pièces préférées mais surtout 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 2017 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

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 totalement accaparée par quelques artistes populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne.

New street art February-March 2016

Here’s a photo gallery of the new street art on the streets of Montreal during the months of February and March 2016. The post is split into sections covering painted pieces, pasted pieces, stickers, and ‘other’. Graffiti done in Montreal during the same period is covered in separate posts. 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 des mois de février et mars 2016. Il est séparé en quatre sections: oeuvres peintes, collages, autocollants, et ‘autre’. Les pièces de graffiti créées au cours de la même période sont présentées dans des articles à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres de street art ou de graffiti aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.


painted

This Hsix mural with a bit of help from Zek on letters was probably finished before February, but confirmation of its completion came with the removal of the scaffoldings in front of it in the middle of winter.

A mid-winter mural piece in Villeray by Arnold.

This is by Algue, on a different wall of the same Villeray building as above.

This is Naimo on letters and Flying Eric with the figurative part, on another wall of the Villeray building featuring the Arnold and Algue pieces above.

Lyfer

Lyfer from the 203 crew is known to do some canvas/gallery art, but streetwise is he strictly a graffiti artist. In my opinion he is one of the best writers of his generation. He constantly reinvents himself and doesn’t stick to only one style of writing. He explores, experiments and often surprises. Not only is he very talented, but he is also incredibly prolific. To give you an idea of the size of his body of work, know that the gallery below, despite being quite extensive, only features a fraction of the work Lyfer has left in our streets, alleys and abandoned spaces over the past few years.

For more photos than what is featured here, or if you are curious about his studio work, check out his Instagram and Tumblr pages.

Lyfer, du crew 203, pratique la peinture sur canevas, mais dans la rue il ne fait que du graffiti. A mon avis il est un des meilleurs graffeurs de sa génération. Une de ses forces est de savoir toujours se réinventer et de ne pas se limiter à un seul style. Il aime explorer, expérimenter et surprendre. Il n’est pas que très talentueux, il est aussi très prolifique. Pour donner une idée de sa présence dans nos rues, ruelles et espaces abandonnés, sachez que la galerie-photo ci-dessous, bien que très garnie, ne présente qu’une fraction de ce que l’artiste a créé au cours des dernières années.

Pour en voir plus que ce que je présente ci-dessous, ou si vous êtes interéssé par son travail en studio, jetez un coup d’oeil à ses pages Instagram et Tumblr.
