New street art July-August 2015

Here’s a gallery of recent murals, wheatpastes, installations, stickers, etc, created in our great city in the past few weeks. Keep in mind that everything done in the context of the Under Pressure Festival is presented in its own separate post. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Voici une galerie-photo présentant les nouvelles murales, collages, installations, autocollants, etc, créés au cours des dernières semaines. Les nouvelles oeuvres produites dans le contexte du Festival Under Pressure font l’objet d’un article à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

New stickers May-June 2015

There has been so much new work in Montreal since my last ‘new works’ installment that I must break this one into differents posts. The gallery below only features new stickers and small paste-ups. For other media, see recents posts about the 2015 edition of Mural Festival, new painted works, new pasted works and new graffiti.

You’ll notice in the image gallery below a lot of stickers by unidentified artists or by unfamiliar names. This is presumably due to the amount of artists from other cities who were in town to check out the Mural Festival.

Il y a eu un tel nombre de créations depuis mon dernier article présentant les nouveautés street art à Montréal que je dois découper celui-ci en sous-articles. La galerie-photo ci-dessous ne présente que les nouveaux autocollants et autres petites pièces collées. Pour les autres nouveautés, voir ces articles récents couvrant l’édition 2015 du Festival Mural, les nouveautés peintes, les nouveaux collages et les nouveaux graffitis.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous inclut un grand nombre d’autocollants d’origine inconnue ou signés de noms qui ne sont pas familiers. Ceci est probablement dû au fait que plusieurs artistes étrangers étaient en ville au début de juin dans le cadre du Festival Mural.

Mural Festival 2015

This article features the new murals created during the 2015 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. Missing is the mural planned by XRAY which was cancelled because of miscommunications with the owner of the wall originally assigned to the artist.

Only four earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Kashink and the 123Klan mural from the 2014 edition, as well as the Omen and Caron murals from the 2013 edition. Last year’s RR & DB wheatpaste mural has since been destroyed by rain and winter; the space was therefore already ready for something new. The Cyrcle mural from 2014 is also gone, that wall had to be rebuilt and it was not yet ready to be covered with a new mural.

You may want to check out this walking tour which I have put together: starting from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, up St-Dominique and the eastern side of St-Laurent then down Clark and the western side of St-Laurent.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2015 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal). Il ne manque que la murale de XRAY qui n’a pas été produite suite à une confusion concernant la disponibilité du mur réservé pour cet artiste.

Seulement 4 murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Kashink et du 123 Klan produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 ainsi que celles d’Omen et de Caron datant de l’édition 2013. La murale avec collage par RR & DB datant de l’an dernier était déjà détruite par la pluie et l’hiver. Cet espace était donc déjà disponible pour recevoir une nouvelle oeuvre. La murale de Cyrcle produite l’année dernière est aussi disparue, mais elle n’a pas été remplacée, le mur étant en cours de réparation.

Vous pourriez être intéressé par ce tour pédestre que j’ai créé: débutant à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, ensuite vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

Mathieu Connery sidewalk pieces

Mathieu Connery has been painting his abstract pieces on the sidewalks of St-Laurent since the first edition of Mural Festival. This year he came up with two new pieces and restored a few of the ones from last year which had faded. Then, over the weeks following the end of the festival, he transformed a few of the fading 2014 creations.

Mathieu Connery a peint un certain nombre de pièces abstraites sur les trottoirs de St-Laurent pour chaque édition du Festival Mural. Cette année il a créé deux nouvelles pièces et rafraichit certaines de l’an dernier qui étaient en voie de disparaitre. Dans les semaines qui ont suivi la tenue du festival, il a adapté quelques pièces de 2014 qui étaient en voie de disparaître.

A number of (mostly) local artists covered the backs of the festival’s information boards with their art. These information boards were found interspersed at regular intervals between Mont-Royal and Sherbrooke.

New street art and graffiti March-April 2015

Here’s a feature on new works that have popped up on our streets in April, plus a few from March that I had missed in my last ‘new works’ post. With the long-awaited arrival of favourable weather conditions, we finally saw the return of many of our best and better known artists. It’s still a bit early for large murals, but we have been treated to some new painted pieces (figurative and lots of graffiti) as well as some wheatpastes and lots of stickers.

Cet article présente les nouvelles créations apparues dans nos rues en avril, plus quelques unes datant de mars qui ont échappé à mon dernier article couvrant les nouvelles oeuvres. Avec l’arrivée tant attendue de conditions météo favorables, nos meilleurs artistes ont enfin repris le travail. Il est encore un peu tôt pour la création de grandes murales, mais nous avons découvert un bon nombre de nouvelles pièces peintes (figuratives ou graffiti) ainsi que des collages et évidemment énormément d’autocollants.


Painted pieces

Another (the 3rd) El Moot Moot piece was done in the infamous alley between St-Laurent and Clark. This French artist has taken over our streets and alleys lately with a few dozens of his creature (see my New Works February-March 2015 post).


Wood-ups

XRAY is off to a great start for 2015 with a handful of painted wood cut-outs installed here and there in the central neighbourhoods of Montreal. The themes are familiar ones from his iconography and the very brightly coloured pieces were installed over drab backgrounds to make them stand out even more. Waxhead and Starkey had given us a handful of wood-ups last autumn and winter and in April they collaborated again and gave us a few more joint creations, again very bright splashes of colour over dull backgrounds.

XRAY connait un super début de saison 2015 avec l’installation de cinq pièces de bois peintes dans divers quartiers de Montréal. Les pièces en question présentent des thèmes familiers de l’iconographie de XRAY, elles sont peintes de couleurs très vibrantes et installées sur des supports de couleur terne pour en accentuer l’impact. Waxhead et Starkey, qui nous avaient présenté une poignée de pièces de bois taillées et peintes au cours de l’automne et l’hiver dernier, ont renoué leur collaboration et nous ont servi quelques nouvelles pièces de leur cru. Encore une fois celles-ci ajoutent une touche très colorée sur des décors en manque de vie.

New street art October-November 2014

As everything is about to grind to a halt, there is still a surprising amount of new works appearing on the streets of Montreal. It must be said that a few artists such as Stela have been particularly active lately. Incidently, only a selection of her new works are presented here. Most of the rest can be seen in the Wall2wallMTL spotlight on her work.

Bien que la saison tire à sa fin, il y a quand même un nombre surprenant de nouvelles oeuvres qui sont apparues dans les rues de Montréal. Il faut dire que certains artistes tels que Stela ont été particulièrement actifs. A ce sujet, seulement une sélection des nouvelles pièces de cette dernière sont présentées ici. Le reste peut être vu en visitant son profil Wall2wallMTL.
