Mural Festival 2021

The 2021 edition of Mural Festival, held from 12 to 22 August, was unfortunately less about the murals and more about shows and concerts. Publicity about the event was geared mostly towards these paying events and not much about the visual art and artists.

For the first time since the beginning of the festival, no murals were done on site for people coming to see artists at work, except for Birdo’s in the VIP area, which was only accessible to paying visitors. The only other mural of this edition was the one designed by Teddy Kelly and executed by Jamie Janx, Arnold and William Marceau-Briggs two months after the festival. The Hotel St-Germain downtown had its front painted by Michelle Hoogveld a few weeks before the festival. The ground of a basketball court in Little Italy was painted by Francorama also some time before the event took place.

The other artists on the bill were hired for non-street art creations, such as Marie-Pier Primeau who painted the walls of a private gym’s pool. The talents of Julian Palma Luque, Garbage Beauty’s Monsieur Boz and Zoe Gelfant were unfortunately wasted on painting sponsored bars, picnic tables and furniture in and around the paying zone instead of murals.

The great aspect of the 2021 edition was Mural’s incursion into virtual public art, with famous local street artists Waxhead and Cryote as well as Samuel Arsenault-Brassard and Iregular. They created virtual pieces only visible through the festival’s app. Cryote also virtually created pieces live as they were being projected on a screen for the guests in the paying area to see.

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

L’édition 2021 du Festival Mural, tenue du 12 au 22 août, a été malheureusement axée sur les spectacles et concerts plutôt que les murales. D’ailleurs, la publicité de l’événement mettaient principalement de l’avant le programme d’événements payants tels que ces concert et très peu les artistes visuels.

Pour la première fois depuis la création du festival les visiteurs n’ont pas pu voir d’artistes à l’oeuvre créant leur murale, sauf celle de Birdo dans la section VIP, mais celle-ci était inaccessible sans payer. La seule autre murale de l’édition 2021 a été celle conçue par Teddy Kelly et exécutée deux mois plus tard par Jamie Janx, Arnold Vincent et William Marceau-Briggs. L’Hôtel Germain au centre-ville a été repeint par Michelle Hoogveld quelques semaines avant le début du festival. Le sol d’un terrain de basketball de la Petite Italie a aussi été peint par Francorama quelques temps avant la tenue du festival.

Les autres artistes prévus au programme n’ont pas été engagés pour du street art. Marie-Pier Primeau a peint les murs d’une piscine d’un gym privé. Les talents de Julian Palma Luque, Monsieur Boz de Garbage Beauty et Zoe Gelfant ont malheureusement été gaspillés à peindre des murets de bars et des tables de picnic dans la zone payante ou devant celle-ci, plutôt que des murales.

Un bon coup des organisateurs du festival a été l’ajout d’un nouveau volet virtuel grâce à la participation des artistes Waxhead et Cryote, tous deux bien connus dans le milieu du street art montréalais, ainsi que Samuel Arsenault-Brassard et Iregular. Ces artistes ont créé des pièces virtuelles seulement visible via l’application du festival. Cryote a aussi créé des oeuvres virtuelles live, projetées sur un écran pour les visiteurs dans la section payante du festival.

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.


This awesome mural by Toronto’s Birdo was the only one done during the festival, unfortunately only visible to paying users during its creation.

This building front was designed by Teddy Kelly and executed in October following the festival by Jamie Janx, Arnold Vincent and William Marceau-Briggs.

This installation by June Barry served as an entrance through which paying visitors could access the VIP area.

Michelle Hoogveld painted the front of the Hotel Germain before the beginning of the festival.

Zoe Gelfant painted the sides of this sponsored bar area as well as its picnic tables as the festival took place.

Also on the 2021 Mural Festival bill:
– Marie-Pier Primeau painted the walls of the pool area of a private gym.
– Drew Young was meant to paint another downtown hotel, but this seems to have been canceled.
Monsieur Boz from Garbage Beauty was also on the bill, it is unclear if he has ended up painting for the festival or not.
Waxhead, Cryote, Samuel Arsenault-Brassard and Iregular created virtual art.

Retrospective of 2018 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2018 that were created in a studio, then pasted, glued, screwed in or cemented into a public place. It is not necessarily the best of the year because taste is a subjective thing and I was obviously not able to photograph everything. 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.

The pieces are shown here in alphabetical order of artist name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular artists, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per person. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2018 à Montréal, créées en studio avant d’être collées, vissées ou fixées dans le ciment dans un endroit public. Cette liste n’a pas la prétention d’être un best of de l’année puisque les goûts sont personnels et je n’ai évidemment pas eu la chance de tout photographier. La sélection s’est faite en partie parmi mes pièces favorites, mais surtout parmi les préférées de mes abonnés 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 2018 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique de nom d’artiste. Pour que cette liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques artistes populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes ne comptent que pour une entrée.

This Labrona wheatpaste comes with a calligraphic tag by Lorem Ipsum.

Nothing better than a Labrona wheatpaste to embellish a closed business front. Funny how the characters here seem to be pointing at the tags and litter.

New street art June-July 2015

This post features works which appeared in the streets of Montreal in June and the first week of July 2015 (and that I was lucky enough to catch, of course). Our artists have been very busy and a lot of others were in town for Mural Festival, so this post is another big one! Graffiti was left out, there’s so much of it that it deserves its own separate post.

Cet article présente des oeuvres apparues dans les rues de Montréal en juin et pendant la première semaine de juillet 2015 (ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver, bien sur). Nos artistes ont été très occupés et plusieurs autres de l’extérieur étaient en ville pour le Festival Mural, cet article est donc très chargé! Les pièces de graffiti seront traitées dans un article séparé.

This is actually from slightly earlier than the period covered within this blog post, but I thought it was a one-off joke until I found more. Artist unknown.

More by the above unidentified artist.


wheatpastes

A giant new piece by Stikki Peaches in the fashion district.

Stikki Peaches with Dain from NYC in Plateau/Mile End.

Turtle Caps is back in action. The piece on the left appears to be new, at least for Montreal, while the other one is not. Many other previously seen designs by this artist have been pasted around the Plateau and Mile End in the same week.

Finally some new Miss Me, with Turtle Caps in Mile End.

Poster by Enzo Sarto and Jilly Ballistic in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

wood-ups, wood cut-outs

Huge wood cut-out created by XRAY for the MTL En Arts event. This piece was interactive as people would mount the skateboard to be photographed as if they were being pulled by the revving ship.

At the speed rabbits reproduce, it’s no surprise that Starkey‘s Wabbits are evolving.

Another one by Starkey, this one in alley between St-Denis and Drolet.

Unidentified artist over wooden piece.


Garbage Beauty

July 1st is moving day in Montreal, which means a lot of old furniture is left on the sidewalks and a lot more opportunities there are for Garbage Beauty to do their thing. Below is just a small fraction of what they did in our streets in the past few weeks. Their best work does not remain outside very long before it gets picked up and given a new home (or the same home from whence it came!).

Le 1er juillet est jour de déménagement à Montréal, donc beaucoup de vieux meubles se retrouvent sur les trottoirs et deviennent des canevas pour Garbage Beauty. Seulement une infime fraction de ce que Garbage Beauty a fait au cours des dernières semaines est présenté ici. Le meilleur de leur travail ne reste pas sur les trottoirs très longtemps avant d’être récupéré par de nouveaux (et parfois les anciens) propriétaires.

Labrona

Labrona is one of the big names of Montreal’s street art scene. He is often commissionned for murals and other painted work (even outside Montreal) but, as seen in the photo gallery below, he is also quite active unofficially. For much more on the artist than what is shown here (particularly for his non-street work), check out labrona.net as well as his Instagram page.

Labrona est un des grands de la scène montréalaise de street art. Il est souvent embauché pour effectuer des murales et autres oeuvres peintes (même hors de Montréal) mais, tel que vu dans la galerie ci-dessous, une grande part de son oeuvre n’est pas officielle. Pour en voir beaucoup plus que ce qui est présenté ici, jetez un coup d’oeil à labrona.net ainsi qu’à sa page Instagram.
