Lost Claws

Lost Claws is a street artist mainly into wheatpasting, but he also has some painted work to his credit. He has been active in the streets and alleys of Montreal since approximately June 2017. The artist wittily expresses his dark, pessimistic or sarcastic views on the world, life and relationships through various characters, some recurring (teeth, skeletons, Death) and some one-offs (often animals).

The artist is extremely prolific and I have been able to find only a fraction of his work before it got destroyed. You should therefore check out his Instagram page for a lot more work than what I am presenting in the gallery below.

Lost Claws est un artiste de rue dont le medium préféré est le collage, mais qui peint aussi à l’occasion. Il est actif dans les rues et ruelles de Montréal depuis approximativement juin 2017. A l’aide d’une panoplie de personnages, certain récurrents (dents, squelettes, la Mort) ou non (souvent des animaux), il exprime sa vision sombre, pessimiste ou sarcastique, du monde, de la vie et des relation humaines.

Cet artiste est extremement prolifique et je n’ai eu la chance de photographier qu’une fraction de son oeuvre avant qu’elle ne soit détruite. Vous êtes donc invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à sa page Instagram si vous voulez en voir beaucoup plus que ce que je suis en mesure de présenter dans la galerie ci-dessous.

Retrospective of 2018 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2018 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.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2018 à Montréal, créées en studio avant d’être collées, vissées ou fixées dans le ciment dans un endroit public. 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 2018 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

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

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.
