Tributes to Scaner

This post is a photo gallery of tributes to Scaner that have appeared in Montreal and Miami since the writer passed away on 9 September 2017. Most of the creations are by writers doing Scan’s name, but I also found a few street art/figurative pieces celebrating Montreal’s graffiti king.

Artists did not wait for Scaner to be gone before celebrating him. A section at the end of this post features pieces honouring him after the news came out that he was terminally ill.

Voici une gallerie-photo d’hommages à Scaner trouvés à Montréal et Miami depuis le décès de ce dernier le 9 septembre 2017. La majorité des créations sont par des graffeurs écrivant le nom de Scaner, mais j’ai aussi trouvé quelques pièces de street art et autres pièces figuratives célébrant celui que la communauté Montréalaise du graff appelle son ‘king’.

Certains artistes n’ont pas attendu le départ de Scaner pour le célébrer. Une section au bas de cet article présente des pièces en son honneur créées après que la nouvelle se soit répandue qu’il ne lui restait que peu de temps.

the green room / pièce verte

The green room lacked windows and was therefore in the near complete darkness until the demolition team made holes in the ceiling to let light in when they arrived in February 2016. Before they did, graffers and other visitors would have to cross the room in the dark when passing from the blue to the yellow rooms. The only pieces visible on this room’s walls at the time (if they had a flashlight) were the Nock and Pacer ones shown in the gallery below. The rest of the material in this room was done after light was let in, with the exception of a few pieces done in a small adjoining room which had windows and was therefore always brightly lit.

La pièce verte n’avait pas de fenêtre et se trouvait conséquemment dans la quasi-obscurité jusqu’à l’arrivée en février 2016 des équipes de démolition qui ont créé des ouvertures dans le toit pour y laisser entrer la lumière. Avant leur arrivée, les graffeurs et autres visiteurs passant de la pièce bleue à la pièce jaune devaient traverser cette pièce verte dans l’obscurité presque totale. Les seules oeuvres visibles (s’ils avaient une lampe de poche) étaient celles de Nock et Pacer présentées dans la galerie ci-dessous. Les autres oeuvres ont été créées après l’ouverture du toit, à l’exception de quelques unes se trouvant dans une petite pièce attenante avec fenêtres, donc toujours très éclairée.

New graffiti February 2016

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during February 2016 and that I was lucky enough to find.

Cet article présente les meilleurs graffitis créés à Montréal au cours de février 2016 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier. Bien que février est le seul mois cet hiver où il a fait froid, la majorité des oeuvres trouvées sont tout de même des pièces extérieures. Pour voir les nouvelles créations aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

New graffiti January 2016

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during January 2016 and that I was lucky enough to find. Even though winter has been gentle during January, writers were more active indoors than outdoors so the majority of pieces shown here were found in abandoned places about to get demolished. 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 janvier 2016 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier. Malgré l’hiver clément que nous avons connu en janvier, les artistes étaient plus actifs à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur et en conséquence la majorité des pièces présentées ici ont été trouvées dans des batiments abandonnés en attente de démolition. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.
