Tributes to Scaner

This post is a photo gallery of tributes to Scaner that have appeared in Montreal 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 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.

Astro

Astro is another one of our street artists that history should remember. After making his name as one of Montreal’s top graffiti artists, he was roughly arrested and consequently now concentrates on legal street pieces and studio work. He is a member of DUC crew (with Pask, Koal, Sino, Stare etc.) as well as the French crew EB (which also includes Otek from Montreal). He has also been part of the now defunct La Paria crew with Zema, Frank Lam, etc. For more info on the artist or for photos of his studio work or his street work outside Montreal, see his personal website as well as his Instagram et Behance pages.

Astro est un autre de nos artiste de rue que l’histoire ne devrait pas oublier. Après s’être illustré comme un des tops graffeurs à Montréal, il a été arrêté (une ‘arrestation musclée’ pour utiliser les termes de l’artiste) et en conséquence il s’en tient maintenant aux oeuvres légales et au travail en studio. Il fait partie du DUC crew (avec Pask, Koal, Sino, Stare, etc) ainsi que du crew français EB (qui inclut aussi Otek de Montréal). Il a aussi fait partie du défunt crew La Paria avec Zema, Frank Lam, etc. Pour plus d’information sur l’artiste et pour voir des photos de son travail de studio ou ses oeuvres de rue hors-Montréal, voir son site web personnel ainsi que ses pages Instagram et Behance.
