Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2015. 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/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 murales et autres pièces de street art peint créées en 2015 à Montréal. 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 2015 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

2Alas‘ contribution to the 2015 edition of Mural Festival.

2Alas also gave us this downtown mural whilst in town around Mural Festival.

A new year also brings a new wall by Phillips Adams at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance. This may actually be his best one so far.

Alber left a few masterpieces at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen during his stay in Montreal last summer.

Another one by Alber (bottom right) at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

One of the great new names on the streets this year was Apok from the Astred Collective. This piece, the first I ever encountered by Apok, was found at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Another one by Apok, this one at the abandoned Montreal Hippodrome. The fascinating thing about this artist, besides being obviously incredibly talented, is that he does figurative work but still operates in the usual graffiti spots. As far as I know most if not all of his street work so far has been done alongside that of graffiti artist Eskro (see Retrospective of 2015 graffiti).

Another masterpiece by Apok, this one in the abandoned Transco.

One of the best murals of the year is this huge one done over the summer by Five Eight in the Plateau.

Whilst in town early last summer, Grominator left this piece in Rosemont.

Another early summer production by Grominator, this time in an abandoned building in the South West. Also visible at the bottom of this shot is a piece by Pask.

This building on Savoie was painted by Les Hommes De Lettres to look like a stack of books. The wall beneath the building was done by the same artists last year.

Mateo‘s main creation this year is this huge mural titled ‘Más’ (‘More’) in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie. See a video of the making of this mural on Vimeo.

Across the street from the huge mural by Mateo above in this list is this other by the same artist. Smaller in size (but still not small), it is titled ‘Menos’ (‘Less’) and acts as a counterpart to the big one.

Mateo also makes this year-end list with this mural in Petite-Patrie. Click on image to better appreciate the mural’s fine details.

After having contributed one of the most memorable Mural Festival murals in 2014, Seth returned to Montreal to give us this splendid wall on Papineau.

Whilst in town for some commissioned work, Shalak was invited by Turtle Caps to contribute to this delivery/parking space which was being completely redone by a bunch of great artists (from Montreal and elsewhere). This piece of hers is actually one of my very favourite creations of 2015.

This brilliant piece by Bruno Smoky was done at about the same time as the one above it in this list by his Clandestinos partner Shalak.

Bruno Smoky (right) and Cens (left) came up with this back alley mural in early June. Scroll up this page for more by Cens. The latter artist also made it into the Retrospective of 2015 graffiti.

This mindblowing mural by Stare in the Plateau was also the last mural to be completed in Montreal in 2015.

Before starting on the latter mural Stare also spent many weeks working on this masterpiece between the Plateau and the Quartier des Spectacles.

This was a very busy year for Stare. His first major wall of the year was this one near the Quartier des Spectacles.

This Chinatown mural by Stare features a great piece of deconstructed graffiti calligraphy. Stare is the ultimate urban artist, having placed 4 murals into this list as well as 4 pieces into the Retrospective of 2015 graffiti.

This collective wall was done off-Mural Festival by Montreal artist Stela (above and inside door) with the help of visitors Amanda Valdes (bottom left), Didi aka Diana Contreras (left of door) and Lulu107 (top left). Stela has also made it into the Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art.

Tava took a break from doing street art in 2015 but still accepted a few commissioned door pieces, like the three ones found in this year-end list. This particular one was done in the Plateau with the help of Detto.

This is another Tava / Detto collaboration, but in Little Italy.

One more Tava in Little Italy.

This is a piece by Tchug found in a well-hidden spot in upper Plateau.

Axel Void‘s contribution to the 2015 edition of Mural Festival.

Waxhead‘s contribution to the June edition of Chromatic.

This Waxhead mural can be found in a back alley between the Plateau and the McGill ghetto. Scroll up to El Moot Moot above in this list for a collaboration with Waxhead. Waxhead has also placed work into the Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art.

The front window space of this Plateau End house gets redone by Waxhead 2 or 3 times a year. This is one of the 2015 creations. You can see the evolution of this house by clicking on the latter link which will bring you to the Waxhead wall2wallMTL spotlight. The piece above the door and window is an older one by Gawd.

WhatIsAdam‘s contribution to the June edition of Chromatic.

Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2015 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.

A few variations on this Futur Lasor Now poster were spotted around central Montreal at the end of summer.

Futur Lasor Now added a bit of life and fun to some electoral boards.

2015 saw this new variation in Futur Lasor Now‘s illuminati sticker series.

That other poster by Lily Luciole.

Wood-up by Loks.

Another wood-up by Loks. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by this artist.

This Lovebot wheatpaste was put up at the abandoned Canada Malting Plant. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Lovebot.

A handful or two of Manyoly wheatpastes popped up around Plateau/Mile End over the summer. This one made this year-end list, but to be honest any of the others could have been picked instead.

Rey Midax returned to the streets this year with a few series of wheatpastes. The best series were these Madonnas, each one ‘dressed’ differently. I picked this particular one for this retrospective but any other could have been shown here as they are all quite impressive when seen in person.

Rey Midax also put up a series of Oscar Wilde wheatpastes over central Montreal and Hochelaga during the autumn.

Rey Midax‘s other series of wheatpastes showed Alan Turing.

A socio-political wheatpaste montage by Mimi who I wish was more active in the streets of Montreal.

During September Miss Me covered this UQAM building with wheatpastes of images and text for Leave Out Violence. As I was out of the country at the time, I have borrowed this photo © Miss Me. Check out this earlier post for more photos of other sides of the building.

Miss Me came up with new Musical Saints wheatpastes during the summer. This one showing Billie Holiday was particularly impressive.

This Marvin Gaye wheatpaste by Miss Me was seen here and there over town, but this particular specimen was picked to be shown in this year-end list because of the brilliant spot the artist found to display it. Photo © PiaMTL.

Miss Me also revisited her Portrait Of A Vandal wheatpaste series in the latter half of the year and came up with new variations. I picked this one to be shown here, but you can see others in this earlier post and this one.

Mono Sourcil put up a series of these pasted cardboard heads this autumn. See also Labrona above in this list for more pasted work by Mono Sourcil. Check out the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Mono Sourcil.

This is another one of these pasted cardboard heads by Mono Sourcil. See the whole dozen I was able to photograph in this earlier post.

Wood-up by Mouthful.

Posters signed by Muesli were found here and there in central Montreal following the Charlie Hebdo shooting at the beginning of 2015.

This is one of many stickers put up around Montreal by National Zombi this year. I picked this one to represent the whole series. Many can be seen in this earlier post, and a few more here.

This National Zombi sticker stands out from the rest and is cute enough to make this year-end list!

Pony wheatpaste found in Cité du Multimédia.

Another Pony wheatpaste found in Cité du Multimédia.

This wheatpaste by Le Renard Fou appropriately states “Le Renard Fou est back in town” and marked the beginning of a series of similar and very colourful wheatpastes put up by this artist in Mile End, the Plateau and Petite-Patrie.

New murals and other painted works October 2015

Here’s a photo gallery of the new murals and other painted works of smaller scale finished during the month of October. Separate articles were just published featuring new pasted works (wheatpastes, stickers, etc) and new graffiti (part 1, part 2). If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales ainsi que les autres pièces peintes de plus petite taille terminées au cours du mois de septembre. Les nouvelles oeuvres collées (collages, autocollants, etc) ainsi que les nouveautés graffiti (partie 1, partie 2) font l’objet d’articles à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

Chris Dyer repaired and modified his piece (left) in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark (click on latter link to see the earlier piece). His brother Peru143 filled the space to his right.

While Chris Dyer redid his piece seen above, Turtle Caps redid this adjacent door which, incidentally, used to feature something by Peru Dyer. Above the door is a new fat throwie by Sake and to the right an older throwie by Peru143‘s Wastoids. Also visible are tags by Omen and others.

After Turtle Caps redid the above garage door, it was consistently vandalised by taggers. A turf war ensued, with each party going over each other within a day or two. This is the third version of Turtle Caps’ contribution.

See above. This is something like Turtle Caps‘ seventh version of this door. Notice the new Waxhead piece on the left.

Waxhead in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark. Also visible in the top left corner of the photo is a wood-up by Loks; see further down this gallery for close-up.

Just like Turtle Caps above, Waxhead‘s piece was also quickly vandalised by taggers. Instead of simply repairing the old one, Waxhead came up with something new.

This boarded up perimeter of a construction site covered in ad posters was taken over by one artist or various people, presumably to make a statement against the gentrification of Pointe St-Charles. Silhouettes of walking people were painted in white over posters on the two sides of the lot, old suitcases with messages about rent on them were affixed to their ‘hands’, and heads of various politicians were cut out of recent electoral signs and put up above the fence as if they were looking down on the residents forced to leave their neighbourhood.

New pasted works September 2015

Here’s a photo gallery of the new pasted works (wheatpastes, stickers, etc.) put up in the streets and alleys of Montreal during the month of September. Separate articles were just published featuring new murals and other painted works and new graffiti. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.
