Eskro

Eskro is a graffiti writer active in and around Montreal, and one of the most talented and prolific of his generation. Until the end of 2016 he was a member of the multi-disciplinary crew Astred Collective, but early in 2017 he started representing a new crew called TFS (or 24/7 – twenty-four/seven). At some point early in 2018 he also started representing YU8 (why you hate?) when a friendship between members of TFS and YU8 led to some writers from each one being admitted in the other crew.

Eskro has very little presence online, but you can follow him on Instagram.

Eskro est un graffeur actif à Montréal, et un des plus talentueux et prolifiques de sa génération. Jusque vers la fin de 2016 il était membre du collectif multi-disciplinaire The Astred Collective, mais à partir du début 2017 il s’est mis à représenter TFS (ou 24/7 pour twenty-four/seven). Vers le début de 2018 il a aussi commencé à représenter YU8 (lire why you hate?) après qu’une amitié entre certains membres des crews TFS et YU8 a fait en sorte que des graffeurs de chacun de ces crews ont été admis dans l’autre.

La seule présence d’Eskro sur l’internet est sur Instagram.

New graffiti December 2015

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during December 2015. Of course, even though this post is huge, it is just a fraction of what was produced in this city during that time – it is the best of what I was lucky enough to catch. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les meilleures pièces de graffitis produites à Montréal au cours de décembre 2015 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.
