Mural Festival 2017

This article features the new murals created during the 2017 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 from June 8th to 18th.

Seven earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Meggs and the Pantone mural from the 2016 edition, the Nychos, Melissa del Pinto and Eric Clément murals from the 2015 edition, and the Squid Called Sebastian and Astro/La Paria ones from the 2013 edition. The Ashop mural on Napoleon, which is older than the festival, was also covered to make space for a new one.

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

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2017 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement du 8 au 18 juin.

Sept murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Meggs et de Pantone de l’édition 2016, les murales de Nychos, de Melissa del Pinto et d’Eric Clément produites pour l’édition 2015 ainsi que celles de A Squid Called Sebastian et d’Astro/La Pariadatant de l’édition 2013. La murale d’Ashop sur Napoleon, datant d’avant le Festival, a aussi été recouverte par une nouvelle création.

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.

Joe Iurato’s sidewalk pieces

Following Mathieu Connery and Jason Botkin, in 2017 it was Joe Iurato who supplied the sidewalk pieces for Mural Festival. He did eight in total, all on St-Laurent between Milton and Mont-Royal.

Après Mathieu Connery et Jason Botkin, en 2017 c’était au tour de Joe Iurato de créer les pièces de trottoir pour le Festival Mural. Il en créé huit, toutes sur St-Laurent entre Milton et Mont-Royal.


Cryote’s installations in Parc du Portugal

Cryote was commissioned to create eight ‘sculptures’ (actually installations made from painted wood cutouts) in Parc du Portugal where activities were held all throughout the festival.

information/ad boards

Every year the backs of the Festival’s many information and advertisement boards are painted by a selection of mostly local artists, a great way to showcase a lot of additional Montreal talent.

A chaque année le revers des panneaux d’information et de publicité du Festival sont peints par divers artistes locaux, une excellent initiative permettant de présenter une grande quantité de talent montréalais.

‘your face here’ boards

The Festival increased the number of ‘your face here’ boards this year for kids and adults to interact with the art. Just like the info/ad boards above, these are great canvases for local artists to show their craft during the festival.

Cetta année le festival a augmenté le nombre de panneaux dans lesquels les enfants et adultes peuvent insérer leur visage et se prendre en photo. Tout comme les revers de panneaux d’information et publicitaires ci-dessus, ces panneaux permettent à des artistes locaux de montrer leur talent pendant la durée du festival.

MTL En Arts 2016

This post brings together photos of various artistic creations from the MTL En Arts festival which took place from June 29th to July 3rd this year. The event was put together mainly for artists to sell their creations, but I am only posting here the free public art curated by the people behind the festival. These include

  • the sidewalk panels on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and Robin
  • the flowerpots on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and René-Lévesque
  • the wheatpastes on the boarded doors and windows of the old Club Sandwich restaurant/hotel complex

Cet article présente une gallerie-photo des oeuvres créées dans le contexte de l’édition 2016 du festival MTL En Arts qui a eu lieu cette année du 29 juin au 3 juillet. Le but de l’événement est de donner aux artistes une opportunité de vendre leurs créations, mais ce qui est présenté ici ne sont que les oeuvres publiques gratuites créées dans le contexte du festival. Celles-ci incluent

  • les panneaux sur les trottoirs de la rue Amherst entre Ste-Catherine et Robin
  • les pots de fleurs sur Amherst entre Ste-Catherine et René-Lévesque
  • les collages sur les portes et fenêtres placardées de l’ancien complexe restaurant/hôtel Club Sandwich

Club Sandwich wheatpastes

During the event, the boarded doors and windows of the Club Sandwich restaurant/hotel complex, usually covered with ad posters, were plastered with wheatpastes from various artists. Again, in keeping with the purpose of this blog, I have only selected to show the works of street artists and other artists who have been known to do public events before.

Pendant la tenue du festival, les portes et fenêtres placardées du complexe hôtelier Club Sandwich, habituellement recouvertes d’affiches publicitaires, sont devenues le canevas pour les collages d’une sélection d’artistes.

Mural Festival 2016

This article features the new murals created during the 2016 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 (June 9th to 19th).

Five earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Bicicleta Sem Freio and the 4-Tin mural from the 2015 edition, the Alexis Diaz one from the 2014 edition, the LNY mural from the 2013 edition, as well as the Ashop mural done last autumn because the wall was not ready on time for last year’s edition.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area. It starts from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, goes 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 2016 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement (9 au 19 juin).

Cinq murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Bicicleta Sem Freio et de 4-Tin produites pour l’édition 2015, celle d’Alexis Diaz produite dans le cadre de l’édition 2014, celle de LNY datant de l’édition 2013 ainsi que la murale commanditée d’Ashop produite l’automne dernier sur un mur qui n’était pas prêt à temps pour le festival.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre connectant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier. Le tour débute à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, monte vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis redescend vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

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.
