This image gallery brings together photos of all the pieces created for the 5th edition of Canettes de Ruelle. For this 2021 edition the festival took place in the alleys between 5th and 9th avenues, from Masson to St-Joseph. The gallery below is roughly sorted from west to east, down the 5th/6th alley, up the 6th/7th, down the 7th/8th and up the 8th/9th.

Retrospective of 2021 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2021. 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 artists, 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 2021 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 2021 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 artistes 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.

Retrospective of 2019 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2019. 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 artists, 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 2019 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 2019 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 artistes 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.

Many road pieces appeared on the streets of Montreal over the summer and autumn, mostly around Mile End. These are presumed by many to have been done by Roadsworth but this needs to be confirmed.

One more road piece presumably by Roadsworth (confirmation needed).
