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.

New street art May 2016

Here’s a photo gallery of the new street art having appeared on the streets of Montreal during May 2016. I am aware that at the time this post is published there is still one week left in the month of May, but I will be out of town on vacation for the rest of the month. Whatever else I find after I return will be added to this gallery if I know that it was done in May. The post is split into sections covering painted pieces, pasted pieces, wood-ups, stickers, and ‘other’. Graffiti done in Montreal during the same period is covered in a separate post. If you want to see new Montreal street art and graffiti as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les nouveautés street art apparues dans les rues de Montréal au cours du mois de mai 2016. Je suis conscient qu’il reste encore une semaine au mois de mai, mais je serai à l’extérieur de la ville en vacances jusqu’à la fin du mois. Suite à mon retour, ce que je trouverai qui aura été fait en mai sera ajouté à cette gallerie. L.article est séparé en cinq sections: oeuvres peintes, collages, oeuvres en bois (wood-ups), autocollants, et ‘autre’. Les pièces de graffiti créées au cours de la même période sont présentées dans un article à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres de street art ou de graffiti aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

New street art June-July 2015

This post features works which appeared in the streets of Montreal in June and the first week of July 2015 (and that I was lucky enough to catch, of course). Our artists have been very busy and a lot of others were in town for Mural Festival, so this post is another big one! Graffiti was left out, there’s so much of it that it deserves its own separate post.

Cet article présente des oeuvres apparues dans les rues de Montréal en juin et pendant la première semaine de juillet 2015 (ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver, bien sur). Nos artistes ont été très occupés et plusieurs autres de l’extérieur étaient en ville pour le Festival Mural, cet article est donc très chargé! Les pièces de graffiti seront traitées dans un article séparé.

Garbage Beauty

July 1st is moving day in Montreal, which means a lot of old furniture is left on the sidewalks and a lot more opportunities there are for Garbage Beauty to do their thing. Below is just a small fraction of what they did in our streets in the past few weeks. Their best work does not remain outside very long before it gets picked up and given a new home (or the same home from whence it came!).

Le 1er juillet est jour de déménagement à Montréal, donc beaucoup de vieux meubles se retrouvent sur les trottoirs et deviennent des canevas pour Garbage Beauty. Seulement une infime fraction de ce que Garbage Beauty a fait au cours des dernières semaines est présenté ici. Le meilleur de leur travail ne reste pas sur les trottoirs très longtemps avant d’être récupéré par de nouveaux (et parfois les anciens) propriétaires.
