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.

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.

Cryote a créé huit ‘sculptures’ (en fait des intallations faites de pièces de bois peintes) qui ont été installées au Parc du Portugal où des activités étaient organisées au cours de la durée du 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.

Truck 2 truck MTL – graffiti on wheels

This image gallery features a collection of graffiti (and a few figurative) pieces found on the sides and/or backs of trucks spotted in Montreal. Most of the work shown here was commissioned. I apologize for the quality of some of the images: the trucks are sometimes filthy and in some cases it was difficult to get a good angle between parked vehicles.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous présente des pièces de graffiti (et quelques figuratives) découvertes sur les cotés et derrières de camions à Montréal. La majorité de ces créations ont été commandées. Je dois m’excuser de la piètre qualité de certaines de ces photos. Les camions ne sont pas toujours très propres et il est parfois difficile de trouver un bon angle entre les véhicules stationnés.


Pieces in this gallery are shown in approximate reverse chronological order, so the most recent are at the top.
