Miss Me put up a bunch of new wheatpastes mostly around Mile End, and mostly her iconic Portrait Of A Vandal. This particular one makes this list of new works because it was completely ‘tattoed’. See next two shots for close-ups.

New street art and graffiti winter 2014-2015

After a break of 2 months, here’s the first ‘new works’ post of the year. Now that spring is at the door and our artists are going to hit the streets again, I should be able to go back to posting one or two of these every month.

A few murals and painted pieces were produced during the unusually warm final week of 2014. Then January and February were bitterly cold so not much happened besides stickers and tags. It takes a lot to stop Futur Lasor Now and Stela, so the ‘stickers’ section of the image gallery below includes a lot of their stuff. Waxhead is another of the braver ones. He probably nearly froze his fingers off making sure we got our fix of new painted pieces during the time of the year when others hibernate or go work in warmer climates.

Après un répit de 2 mois, voici le premier article de l’année présentant les nouveautés apparues dans les rues de Montréal. Maintenant que le printemps est à notre porte et que nos artistes vont reprendre la rue, je devrais être de nouveau en mesure de publier un ou deux de ces articles par mois.

Le temps doux que nous avons connu au cours de la dernière semaine de 2014 a rendu possible la création de quelques murales et autres pièces peintes de plus petite envergure. Ensuite les températures se sont maintenues sous les normales pour la majorité de janvier et février, et conséquemment les découvertes ont surtout été des autocollants et des tags. La section ‘stickers’ de la galerie-photo ci-dessous inclut beaucoup de pièces par Futur Lasor Now et Stela parce que rien ne semble arrêter ces deux irréductibles. Waxhead est aussi parmi nos plus braves artistes. Alors que la plupart ont plutôt décidé d’hiberner ou d’aller travailler sous des ciels plus cléments, il s’est gelé les doigts pour que les accros comme moi puissent recevoir leur dose de nouvelles pièces peintes.


Murals and smaller painted pieces

This mural on Sherbrooke is credited to SoRaw and @SamyBaichy, but a search returned nothing for those names.

This small house on Duluth was given its bi- or tri-annual facelift by Waxhead. Also visible at the top is an older piece by Gawd. Check out the evolution of the house in Waxhead’s spotlight.

This new creation by Waxhead is a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki and was found in the McGill ghetto.

Wheatpastes

This poster credited to Muesli appeared here and there in central Montreal in the week following the events at Charlie Hebdo. This particular one was found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

This sign on Parc bears Ms Teri‘s name, but it is not clear whether or not she is the one who put up the arrow wheatpaste beneath it. Also visible is a sticker by Crue.

Above and below: wheatpastes of bagels recently popped up all over Bagelhood, mostly on St-Viateur, Parc and Fairmount. Artist unknown.

St-Laurent|Clark back alley between Laurier and St-Viateur

The back alley that runs behind the western side of St-Laurent is one of Montreal’s great hotspots for commissioned and non-commissioned street art. Two stretches of that alley are particularly interesting: the one from Duluth to Des Pins (subject of a different post) and the one from Laurier to St-Viateur which is covered here. Some of this city’s greatest artists have left their mark there in the form of murals, smaller figurative pieces, graffiti, wheatpastes, stencils and of course the unavoidable stickers.

Each segment of the alley has a different feel, so this post is divided accordingly: Laurier to Fairmount, Fairmount to St-Viateur, and above St-Viateur. Pieces were photographed from the summer of 2014 to the summer of 2016.

La ruelle se trouvant derrière le coté ouest de la rue St-Laurent est une des meilleures galeries à ciel ouvert à Montréal. Deux portions de cette ruelle sont particulièrement intéressantes: celle comprise entre Duluth et Des Pins (le sujet d’un article à part) et celle comprise entre les rues Laurier et St-Viateur, que nous traitons ici. Plusieurs parmi les meilleurs artistes à Montréal y ont laissé leur marque (commandée ou non) sous forme de murales et pièces figuratives de plus petite envergure, graffitis, collages, pochoirs, et évidemment les inévitables autocollants.

La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est divisée en chapitres reflétant le caractère différent de chaque segment de cette ruelle: Laurier à Fairmount, Fairmount à St-Viateur, et nord de St-Viateur. Les pièces présentées ont été photographiées de l’été 2014 à l’été 2016.
