Scan You Rock

Over the weekend of 22-23 April 2017 the Montreal graffiti community got together to celebrate Scaner, one of this city’s best and most respected writers/artists. For the occasion, the walls of the MPC Papers building on the corner of Cabot and Gilmore in the South West (a Montreal graffiti hotspot) were completely redone by over two dozens of Montreal’s best writers and artists, plus friends of Scaner’s who traveled from as far as the USA and Barcelona for the occasion. All in all, nearly 40 new pieces were created during the weekend, they are all shown in the gallery below.

The building where the event took place has been in the past the site of graffiti gatherings such as Meeting Of Styles/Can You Rock. This is why the event was unofficially dubbed with the pun Scan You Rock and the name stuck.

Au cours du weekend du 22-23 avril 2017 la communauté graffiti montréalaise s’est réunie pour célébrer Scaner, un de nos meilleurs artistes dans ce domaine, et sans contredit un des plus respectés. Pour l’occasion, les murs de l’édifice MPC Papers au coin de Cabot et de Gilmore dans le sud-ouest (un hotspot graffiti de Montréal) ont été complètement refaits par au moins deux douzaines des meilleurs artistes montréalais du graffiti ainsi que par quelques amis graffeurs de Scaner qui sont venus d’aussi loin que des Etats-Unis et de Barcelone pour l’occasion. En tout, près d’une quarantaine de nouvelles pièces ont été créées au cours de cette fin de semaine, elles sont toutes présentées dans la gallerie ci-dessous.

L’édifice où l’événement a eu lieu a par le passé été le site de festivals graffiti tels que Meeting Of Styles/Can You Rock. C’est ainsi que quelqu’un a officieusement baptisé l’événement du jeu de mot Scan You Rock, et le nom est resté.

New graffiti May-June 2016

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during May and June 2016 and that I was lucky enough to catch (I was out of the country for 2 weeks during this period).

L’édition 2015 du jam graffiti de Lachine s’est déroulée au cours de la dernière fin de semaine d’août. Comme à chaque année, l’événement a réuni plusieurs des meilleurs artistes de Montréal.
