Jaker

Jaker is one of the top graffiti writers in Montreal. His allegiances are to the BTH, SVC and GK crews. He has very little presence on the internet. This Bombing Science video on Youtube shows great footage of Jaker in action on an autorack.

Jaker est un des meilleurs graffeurs à Montréal. Il est membres des crews BTH, SVC et GK. Il n’est que très peu présent officiellement sur internet. Cette excellente video de Bombing Science montre l’artiste en action.

Axe Lalime

Axe Lalime, or simply Axe, is a very prolific and versatile Montreal artist active since 1995. He stems from the world of graffiti but excels in various forms of figurative art, be it mural or on canvas. He is very active with the K6A crew, but also pays allegiance to crews KG and CFC. He has in the past been a frequent collaborator on Ashop productions.

The photo gallery below is therefore mainly split into sections featuring his graffiti pieces, his figurative work as well as the great collective projects by Ashop and K6A to which he contributed. To see more than what I had the chance to photograph, check out his Facebook and Instagram pages and this great video showing Axe at work on various pieces featured below.

Axe Lalime, ou tout simplement Axe, est un artiste montréalais prolifique et versatile, actif depuis 1995. Il vient du milieu du graffiti mais excelle aussi en art figuratif qu’il soit mural ou sur canevas. Il est très actif avec le collectif K6A mais prête aussi allégeance aux crews KG et CFC. Il a été de par le passé un fréquent collaborateur sur des projets réalisés par Ashop.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous est conséquemment divisée en sections présentant ses pièces de graffiti, ses oeuvres figuratives ainsi que les grands projets collectifs auxquels il a participé aux cotés d’Ashop et de K6A. Pour en voir plus que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram ainsi qu’a cette capsule video montre l’artiste en action, travaillant sur plusieurs des pièces présentées dans la galerie ci-dessous.

bandaid logo

Axe’s signature bandaid logo is often used to sign his murals and pieces (as seen in many instances above). It is also often painted by itself here and there as some sort of elaborate tag. The handful shown below is just a small fraction of the number I have found over the years.

Tel que vu ci-dessus, Axe signe plusieurs de ses murales et autres pièces avec son logo représentant deux pansements entrecroisés. Ce logo lui sert aussi de tag. Les quelques exemplaires montrés ci-dessous ne sont qu’une très petite fraction de ce que j’ai trouvé au cours des dernières années.

Debza

Debza is a tattoo artist and graffiti writer originally from Toulouse but was active in Montreal until he returned home near the end of 2017. As seen in the image gallery below, he can be versatile and his writing style, at times influenced by japanese illustration, is quite unique. He belongs to a few crews, notably GF (“Ghetto Farceur”), and works alongside other writers and artists on multi-artist projects. For more by Debza than what is shown here, have a look at his Facebook and Instagram pages. The following Youtube videos show the artist at work: video 1, video 2.

Debza est tatoueur et writer graffiti originaire de Toulouse ayant été actif à Montréal jusqu’à son départ vers la fin de 2017. Il est très versatile et son style unique d’écriture est parfois influencé par l’illustration japonaise. Il appartient à quelques crews, en l’occurrence GF (“Ghetto Farceur”), et il lui arrive régulièrement de collaborer avec d’autres artistes sur certains projets collectifs. Pour en voir plus de Debza que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, jetez un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram. Quelques vidéos sur Youtube permettent de voir l’artiste à l’oeuvre: vidéo 1, vidéo 2.
