Canettes de Ruelle 2020

This image gallery brings together photos of all the pieces created for the 4th edition of Canettes de Ruelle. Because of the restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this 2020 edition was on a much smaller scale than the ones that came before it. Most of the walls painted in 2020 were in the alley south of Masson, between 5th and 6th avenues.

Cette gallerie-photo présente toutes les oeuvres créées dans le contexte de la 4e édition du festival Canettes de Ruelle. A cause des restrictions découlant de la pandémie de Covid-19, l’édition 2020 s’est déroulée à une plus petite échelle que les éditions précédentes. La plupart des murs peints en 2020 se trouvaient dans la ruelle sud de Masson, entre la 5e et la 6e Avenue.


Above 3 photos: collaboration of Cyndie Belhumeur, Alexis Vaillancourt and Izabelle Duguay over two perpendicular walls; full shot and frontal shots of each side. Le Renard Fou‘s rooftop piece is also visible in the first shot, scroll down for a proper photo of it.

A rare painted piece by Zola. It was vandalised soon after by someone who disagreed with the message (and who also assumed the artist was a man!), see below for Zola’s clever retort with a wheatpaste.

Zola‘s clever answer to the anonymous person who vandalised her contribution.

Zola‘s second contribution to this edition of the festival was this wheatpaste.

Le Renard Fou‘s rooftop piece. My ground level shot was not the best, so instead here’s this photo © Olivier Bousquet.

Louis Letters, Tshoko and Adi. This is the only new wall not in the same alley as all the others. It is one block East in the alley south of Masson between 6th and 7th avenues.

The 203 crew’s contribution to the previous year’s edition of the festival was slightly tweaked with addition of Cler (bottom right) to the previous year’s line-up of Ekes, Borrris, Lyfer, Algue and Flying Eric. This wall is also out of the 2020 festival zone, it is two blocks East in the alley south of Masson between 7th and 8th avenues.

Lorem Ipsum did the calligraphy on the front of the festival’s pop-up shop / headquarters.

Retrospective of 2020 graffiti

This image gallery brings together 200 great pieces of Montreal graffiti from 2020. 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 3 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists under one common theme count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 200 pièces de graffiti produites en 2020 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 2020 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique de nom d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 3 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

Mural Festival 2020

This article features the new murals created during the 2020 edition of Mural Festival as well as the other temporary art found on the site (St-Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mont-Royal) while it was closed to traffic for a few weeks in August. Because of restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, this edition was a limited one, with walls executed one after the other over the length of summer, and without parties or events that would have brought people in proximity to one another.

Four earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the Miss Van and PichiAvo creations from the 2019 edition, the Sandra Chevrier wall from the 2018 edition as well as the Curiot one from the 2015 edition.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2020 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) lorsque celui-ci était piétonnisé pendant quelques semaine en août. A cause des restrictions dues à la pandémie de Covid-19, l’édition 2020 était limitée. Les murales ont été exécutées l’une après l’autre au cours de l’été au complet, et il n’y a pas eu d’événement pour le public autrement qu’en virtuel.

Quatre murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Miss Van et de PichiAvo de l’édition 2019, l’oeuvre de Sandra Chevrier datant de 2018 ainsi que le mur de Curiot créé en 2015.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.


the murals

Here are the 6 murals done for the 2020 edition, in order of completion.

Voici les 6 murales créées pour l’édition 2020, en ordre chronologique.

The first mural of the 2020 edition was completed at the very beginning of July. It was painted by Jeremy Shantz from a design by FvckRender.

This mural by Ankh One was complete in mid-August. Original throws by Cheeto and Listen were preserved at the base of the wall as Ankh painted above them.

Denial completed his Black Lives Matter tribute in mid-August.

Marc-Olivier Lamothe completed his wall in late August.

This is a beautiful tribute by Patrick Forchild to health workers who were at the forefront of the fight against the Covid-19 virus. It was painted on a wall of the Jewish General Hospital and completed near the end of August.

Burnt Toast‘s wall was completed at the very end of August.


bonus murals

The 2 pieces below were done behind the LNDMRK offices as a little extra to the festival’s official programme.

Canettes de Ruelle 2019

This image gallery brings together photos of all the pieces created for the 3rd edition of Canettes de Ruelle.

The gallery below is sorted from west to east, down the 6th/7th alley from Masson to St-Joseph, then up the 7th/8th alley from St-Joseph back to Masson, plus a few pieces in the alley south of Masson between 8th and 9th avenues.
