Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2015 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 2015 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 2015 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.

Wheatpaste set by Amanda Di Genova.

This Futur Lasor Now poster spent the 2015 electoral period on the George General d’Auto Reparation.

A few variations on this Futur Lasor Now poster were spotted around central Montreal at the end of summer.

Futur Lasor Now added a bit of life and fun to some electoral boards.

2015 saw this new variation in Futur Lasor Now‘s illuminati sticker series.

‘Self-portrait’ poster by G.Knight.

G.Knight came up with a series of mock currency wheatpastes and stickers in 2015. This large wheatpaste covers the whole corner door of the George General d’Auto Reparation.

Wheatpastes by Gawd and Labrona. Scroll down to ‘Labrona’ for more pasted art by this artist and see the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by both Gawd and Labrona.

Wheatpastes by Gawd and Labrona; photo © Labrona.

Wheatpaste by Gawd.

Il Flatcha‘s big thing in 2015 was a series of mock permitted/forbidden stickers. I picked these two (I expect the middle one is a real sticker) out of dozens found this year. See more in this earlier post.

Il Flatcha paste-up.

These cat head paste-ups by Kafka were found all over central Montreal during this year’s Mural Festival.

A Kafka poster put up off-Mural Festival.

Another Kafka poster put up off-Mural Festival.

This is one of about a dozen posters put up by Kat over the summer of 2015. Notice the fake brick making it blend into the background, in this alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

Another poster by Kat raising awareness about animal rights. Found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

Another poster by Kat found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

Kat uses real window bars and railings to add to her animal-cruelty message. This one was also found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

Wheatpaste put up in Hochelaga by Labrona. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Labrona. Also visible in the above shot is a drawing by Lapin.

Wheatpastes by Labrona and Mono Sourcil found next to UQAM. There is more pasted art by Mono Sourcil solo further down this list and both Labrona and Mono Sourcil have made it into the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art.

Lily Luciole was not as active on the streets of Montreal in 2015 as before, but both posters by her that I found in 2015 made this year-end list.

That other poster by Lily Luciole.

Wood-up by Loks.

Another wood-up by Loks. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by this artist.

Clever wheatpaste montage by Toronto’s Lovebot.

This Lovebot wheatpaste was put up at the abandoned Canada Malting Plant. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Lovebot.

A handful or two of Manyoly wheatpastes popped up around Plateau/Mile End over the summer. This one made this year-end list, but to be honest any of the others could have been picked instead.

Rey Midax returned to the streets this year with a few series of wheatpastes. The best series were these Madonnas, each one ‘dressed’ differently. I picked this particular one for this retrospective but any other could have been shown here as they are all quite impressive when seen in person.

Rey Midax also put up a series of Oscar Wilde wheatpastes over central Montreal and Hochelaga during the autumn.

Rey Midax‘s other series of wheatpastes showed Alan Turing.

A socio-political wheatpaste montage by Mimi who I wish was more active in the streets of Montreal.

During September Miss Me covered this UQAM building with wheatpastes of images and text for Leave Out Violence. As I was out of the country at the time, I have borrowed this photo © Miss Me. Check out this earlier post for more photos of other sides of the building.

Miss Me came up with new Musical Saints wheatpastes during the summer. This one showing Billie Holiday was particularly impressive.

This Marvin Gaye wheatpaste by Miss Me was seen here and there over town, but this particular specimen was picked to be shown in this year-end list because of the brilliant spot the artist found to display it. Photo © PiaMTL.

Miss Me also revisited her Portrait Of A Vandal wheatpaste series in the latter half of the year and came up with new variations. I picked this one to be shown here, but you can see others in this earlier post and this one.

Mono Sourcil put up a series of these pasted cardboard heads this autumn. See also Labrona above in this list for more pasted work by Mono Sourcil. Check out the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Mono Sourcil.

This is another one of these pasted cardboard heads by Mono Sourcil. See the whole dozen I was able to photograph in this earlier post.

Wood-up by Mouthful.

Posters signed by Muesli were found here and there in central Montreal following the Charlie Hebdo shooting at the beginning of 2015.

This is one of many stickers put up around Montreal by National Zombi this year. I picked this one to represent the whole series. Many can be seen in this earlier post, and a few more here.

This National Zombi sticker stands out from the rest and is cute enough to make this year-end list!

Pony wheatpaste found in Cité du Multimédia.

Another Pony wheatpaste found in Cité du Multimédia.

This wheatpaste by Le Renard Fou appropriately states “Le Renard Fou est back in town” and marked the beginning of a series of similar and very colourful wheatpastes put up by this artist in Mile End, the Plateau and Petite-Patrie.

Another colourful wheatpaste combo by Le Renard Fou. Also visible on the right are mini-posters by Aura Fallu.

This Stela piece is a wheatpaste but the design also exists as a sticker. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Stela.

This is a collaboration wheatpaste between Stela and Swarm. See below for more by Swarm.

A year-end list would not be complete without some Stikki Peaches wheatpastes.

These Stikki Peaches wheatpastes are quite impressive in size as well as coolness.

New street art June-July 2015 part 2

Here’s a gallery of new street art that has appeared in the streets and alleys of Montreal during July 2015, with a few leftovers from June. Many murals and mural pieces were created over the past few weeks, and a lot of wheatpastes were put up. However, there has a been a surprisingly small amount of new stickers on traffic signs and other ‘urban furniture’. This is presumably because the city has been more pro-active in removing stickers lately, but also because our most active slappers are out of town or busy with personal projects. Again, there was enough graffiti to justify a separate post which will be published within the coming week.

Stay tuned for some very big murals which should be completed in time for my next ‘new works’ post. Meanwhile, you can follow me on Instagram and view the progress of these murals, or see photos of the best of new street art as soon as I discover it.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous présente les nouvelles pièces de street art apparues dans nos rues et ruelles en juillet 2015, avec quelques restes de juin. Ces dernières semaines ont été marquées par la création d’un grand nombre de murales et de pièces murales, ainsi qu’un grand nombre de collages. Etonnamment, nous avons trouvé très peu de nouveaux autocollants. Ceci est probablement dû à une action plus aggressive de la ville contre ce medium (panneaux nettoyés ou remplacés, poteaux repeints), mais aussi au fait que nos ‘slappers’ les plus actifs étaient à l’extérieur ou occupés par divers projets personnels. Il y a eu assez de nouvelles pièces de graffiti pour justifier la publication d’un article séparé, à paraitre au cours de la semaine qui vient.

Quelques murales de très grande envergure sont en cours de production en ce moment. Elles devraient être complétées à temps pour mon prochain article présentant les nouveautés. D’ici là, vous être invités à me suivre sur Instagram. Vous pourrez ainsi suivre l’avancement de ces murales et voir l’essentiel des nouvelles créations aussitôt découvertes.

Monk.e in Hochelaga.

Luc Bouchard in Hochelaga (although I expect this wall may be older than Monk.e’s).

Stare in Centre-Sud. Notice how the artist used the sign next to his wall to imitate the ID label (stating artist name, title, format, etc.) found next to art pieces in museum.

FelixDTK and MiguelDTK mural in Little Italy with officially sanctioned pieces by Pask and Koal at the bottom.

Nixon in Petite-Patrie, presumably done in June.

Is it graffiti? Is it figurative? Max representing his YMCA crew at the PSC legal graffiti wall.

Another lettering/figurative hybrid by Max representing his YMCA crew at the PSC legal graffiti wall.
