Retrospective of 2018 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2018 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 2018 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 2018 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.

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.
