Mural Festival 2018

This article features the new murals created during the 2018 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 from June 7th to 17th.

Six earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the Ricardo Cavolo and Insa from the 2017 edition, the XRAY and Ms Teri walls from the 2016 edition, the Young Jarus wall from the 2015 edition, and the Other mural from the 2013 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 2018 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement du 7 au 17 juin.

Six murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Ricardo Cavolo et de Insa de l’édition 2017, celles de XRAY et de Ms Teri de l’édition 2016, celle de Young Jarus de l’édition 2015 ainsi que celle de Other datant de l’édition 2013.

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.

ASVP’s sidewalk pieces

In 2018 it was ASVP‘s turn to supply the sidewalk pieces in the Mural zone. He did seven in total, all on St-Laurent between Milton and St-Joseph.

En 2018 c’était au tour de ASVP de créer les pièces de trottoir pour le Festival Mural. Il en créé sept, toutes sur St-Laurent entre Milton et St-Joseph.


vehicles

The 123Klan painted the outside of this shuttle that brings people to the Alouettes (football) games. Two more buses were done during the festival but I was not able to photograph them.

SBU One, MSHL and Naimo collaborated on this truck for a Rosemont café. The side here is mostly by SBU One with a bit by MSHL, and the back is all by MSHL. See below for the opposite side mostly by Naimo.

This is Naimo‘s side of the above truck for a Rosemont café. SBU One and MSHL have also contributed a bit to this side.


information/ad boards

Every year the backs of the Festival’s many information and advertisement boards are painted by a selection of mostly local artists, a great way to showcase a lot of additional Montreal talent. A few are missing from the gallery below as I was unable to photograph them before they got tagged.

A chaque année le revers des panneaux d’information et de publicité du Festival sont peints par divers artistes locaux, une excellent initiative permettant de présenter une grande quantité de talent montréalais. Quelques pièces, que je n’ai pas eu la chance de photographier avant qu’elles ne soient tagguées, manquent à la galerie ci-dessous.

‘your face here’ boards

Just like the info/ad boards above, these ‘your face here’ boards are great canvases for local artists to show their craft during the festival. I’ve only photographed a few of these this year.

Tout comme les revers de panneaux d’information et publicitaires ci-dessus, ces panneaux permettent à des artistes locaux de montrer leur talent pendant la durée du festival. Je n’ai malheureusement photographié que quelques uns cette année.

MTL En Arts 2016

This post brings together photos of various artistic creations from the MTL En Arts festival which took place from June 29th to July 3rd this year. The event was put together mainly for artists to sell their creations, but I am only posting here the free public art curated by the people behind the festival. These include

  • the sidewalk panels on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and Robin
  • the flowerpots on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and René-Lévesque
  • the wheatpastes on the boarded doors and windows of the old Club Sandwich restaurant/hotel complex

Cet article présente une gallerie-photo des oeuvres créées dans le contexte de l’édition 2016 du festival MTL En Arts qui a eu lieu cette année du 29 juin au 3 juillet. Le but de l’événement est de donner aux artistes une opportunité de vendre leurs créations, mais ce qui est présenté ici ne sont que les oeuvres publiques gratuites créées dans le contexte du festival. Celles-ci incluent

  • les panneaux sur les trottoirs de la rue Amherst entre Ste-Catherine et Robin
  • les pots de fleurs sur Amherst entre Ste-Catherine et René-Lévesque
  • les collages sur les portes et fenêtres placardées de l’ancien complexe restaurant/hôtel Club Sandwich


Amherst panels

Here are the 14 panels installed on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and Robin a few weeks ahead of the festival.

Amherst flowerpots

Over a dozen huge flowerpots were installed on Amherst between Ste-Catherine and René-Lévesque and painted by various artists a few weeks before the festival. In keeping with the purpose of this blog, I have only selected to show the works of street artists and other artists who have been known to do public events beforehand.

Une douzaine ou peut-être une quinzaine de grands pots de fleurs ont été installés sur Amherst entre Ste-Catherine et René-Lévesque et peints par divers artistes quelques semaines avant la tenue du festival.

Club Sandwich wheatpastes

During the event, the boarded doors and windows of the Club Sandwich restaurant/hotel complex, usually covered with ad posters, were plastered with wheatpastes from various artists. Again, in keeping with the purpose of this blog, I have only selected to show the works of street artists and other artists who have been known to do public events before.

Pendant la tenue du festival, les portes et fenêtres placardées du complexe hôtelier Club Sandwich, habituellement recouvertes d’affiches publicitaires, sont devenues le canevas pour les collages d’une sélection d’artistes.

Top 100 graffiti pieces of 2015

This image gallery brings together my 100 favourite pieces of graffiti from 2015. From a long list of about 800, I created a ‘short’ list of 250 which I painstakingly trimmed down to the 100 seen below. It was already difficult selecting 100 pieces, it is impossible to sort them in order of preference, so they are shown here in alphabetical order. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from my very favourite writers, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two artists under one common theme count as one entry (which means that I managed to cheat my way into actually including a bit more than 100 pieces!). 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.

Cette galerie-photo présente mes 100 pièces de graffiti préférées de 2015. Une première sélection de 800 a servi à produire une liste ‘courte’ de 250 que j’ai graduellement, et avec beaucoup de peine, réduite aux 100 pièces présentées ci-dessous. C’était déjà trop difficile de choisir 100 pièces, je ne suis pas en mesure de les présenter en ordre de préférence et elles apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique. Pour que cette liste ne soit pas accaparée par mes artistes préférés, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée (j’ai ainsi réussi à tricher et inclure quelques pièces de plus!). Bien sur cette liste a 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 2015 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Scien (top) and Klor (bottom) from 123Klan in Petite-Patrie (the pair count as one entry).

Acek (top) and Lyfer (bottom) from the abandoned Transco; the pair count as one entry.

Aces from the abandoned Transco.

Aces at the abandoned “Jailspot”

Akim

Algue turned this room inside the abandoned Transco into a 203 Crew ballroom.

Apashe at the PSC legal graffiti wall. The ‘wabbits’ seen above are by Starkey.

An anti-extremist piece by Apashe at the PSC legal graffiti wall. Starkey‘s ‘wabbits’ remain above.

Apashe in Rosemont.

Astro in Rosemont. It’s hard to decide whether some of Astro’s work is more graffiti or figurative. Therefore, see the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post for more by this artist.

Bosny at the PSC legal graffiti wall, making sure the artform of graffiti keeps evolving and doesn’t stagnate and become boring.

Bosny doing Five Eight‘s name as part of an exchange in Rosemont. Pask was also involved in this exchange, see all of it in this earlier post.

Bosny apparently having trouble with the tracking of his VCR; from the abandoned Transco.

A well-hidden one by Cens. See the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post for some figurative work by this artist.

Crane has left an impressive body of work in 2015, but this piece and the next one are the two by him that did it the most for me in 2015.

Crane at the PSC legal graffiti wall.

Debza in Rosemont. The four pieces of his making this year-end list show the diversity of styles and originality that this impressive artist is capable of.

Debza in Rosemont. This one seems to have been influenced by his time in Japan.

Debza in the abandoned Transco.

Debza in Rosemont.

EK Sept deconstructed at the limit of abstraction, but still in complete control of the space being used; from the abandoned Transco.

Ekes (top) and Lyfer (bottom) shining out of a dark basement in the abandoned Transco. This pair counts as one entry. There is more Ekes and Lyfer below under ‘Lyfer’ and more Lyfer above with Acek.

Ekler at the abandoned “Jailspot”

Eskro from the abandoned Transco. This artist really came out strongly in the second half of 2015, often in combo with Apok who is also from the Astred Collective. See the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post for the Apok material.

One more by Eskro from the abandoned Transco.

Ewol‘s contribution to the ‘Silver Beach’ jam in Rosemont during the autumn.

Another one by Ewol in Rosemont.

Montreal graffiti pioneer Fiuser doing it old school in Rosemont.

Fleo (left), Cens (right) and Cassandra Leigh D aka Snikr combo in Old Montreal.

Mindblowing truck side by Fleo done during the late summer’s Hip Hop You Don’t Stop Festival. Figurative truck side art by other artists can be seen in the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post.

Fleo under one of our city’s expressways.

Fleo on the opposite side of the above piece.

Fone from a Spring HSP/SIK jam in Ahuntsic.

This one by Geser just stands out from a wall in Petite-Patrie.

Haks at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Haks‘ contribution to this summer’s Lachine graffiti Jam. Also visible beneath his piece is one by Ozax.

Haks‘ contribution to this year’s edition of Under Pressure.

A very clean and effective one by Havok found in Rosemont.

This is one of the few pieces Hoacs left in Montreal during his stay here.

Jaber‘s contribution to this year’s edition of Under Pressure.

Jaker‘s contribution to the ‘Silver Beach’ jam in Rosemont during the autumn. To his left is Jmoe (see Legal below).

Janek has really had a great year as far as I’m concerned. This great piece is from the abandoned Transco.

Another one by Janek, this time at the PSC legal graffiti wall.

Janek again, this time in Rosemont.

Kemr aka Kems never disappoints, but this one in Petite-Patrie is among my favourites of the year.

Another Kemr/Kems masterpiece in Petite-Patrie. Spraycan next to him is by John Kaye.

Kemr/Kems erupting at the abandoned “Jailspot”.

Korb from the abandoned Transco.

Another one by Korb, this one at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Kwun has been particularly active in the last quarter of the year. Of the ones I have been able to catch, this piece found in Rosemont is my favourite.

Legal‘s contribution to the ‘Silver Beach’ jam in Rosemont during the autumn. To his right is Jmoe (see Jaker above).

This is one of the few pieces Looter left in Montreal during his stay here.

Lyfer and Ekes at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen. My only regret is not having had a chance to get a better frontal shot of this. See above under ‘Ekes’ for another collaboration between these two.

Lyfer from the abandoned Transco. This artist amazes me by the number of ways he is able to reinvent his style. It was particularly difficult to narrow down his best work of 2015. See above under ‘Acek’ and ‘Ekes’ for more by him.

This was an odd little combo by Wisar (left), Mirabolle (centre) and Kub (right) at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen, but somehow it worked.

This is not only my favourite one by Naimo in 2015, but it may also extend to his work from previous years as well. Judging on how long it remains untouched at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen (notorious for petty tagging and toying), I suppose others love it just as much as I do.

Naimo again, this time near the PSC legal graffiti wall. Throwies above by Bank and Owk from the VC crew are from before 2015.

Narc in Rosemont.

Narc (top) and Shok in Ahuntsic; the pair count as one entry.

Noper at the PSC legal graffiti wall.

Omar aka Royal in Rosemont.

One of Otek’s train pieces done early in the year.

I picked this one from the abandoned Transco to represent Pask in this year-end list (out of many possible contenders) because it is the most playful one I found by him this year.

Past at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Ratek in Rosemont.

Rouks is one of those multi-faceted artists who excel at doing both figurative and letters.

Rouks floating into space at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

Rouks in Rosemont again. Don’t get distracted by the woman and miss out on the brilliant dragon.

I love this one by Rouks from the abandoned Transco because of its unique letters/figure composition which makes it stand out from most of his repertoire in 2015.

This one by Scaner set Rosemont on fire.

This masterpiece by Scaner was unfortunately well hidden and seen by very few.

Some electric blue chrome by Scaner in Rosemont.

Summer rooftop Scaner in Petite-Patrie.

The way this one by Scribe stands out from the ugly grey wall behind it is mindblowing.

Scribe shining out of the darkness on a Rosemont wall.

Sewer representing the HSP crew in Rosemont.

The above two by Shok (top) and Tuna (bottom) from the abandoned Transco count as one entry. There is more by Shok under ‘Narc’ above in this list.

Skizo in Rosemont.

Another one by Skizo in Rosemont.

Skope (right) and Miow (left) at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen.

It was difficult to narrow down Skor‘s impressive input in 2015 to the four ones making this list. It was a nobrainer however when it came to the one above from the abandoned “Jailspot”, it had to make the list.

Skor contributed this piece to this autumn’s unofficial ‘Silver Beach’ jam which he actually curated.

This is Skor‘s contribution to this summer Lachine graffiti Jam. Seen beneath him is Smak.

Skor blasting Ahuntsic into space.

Snipe from the AG Crew, on a Plateau End wall curated by 123Klan.

Snok on the rooftop of the abandoned Transco.

Sober in Rosemont.

SP One in Petite-Patrie, at the invitation of the AG Crew I believe.

Stare shines electric at the Eastern end of the Plateau. There is so much happening in there, click on image to see in full size and appreciate details.

Stare heating up early Spring in Rosemont.

Stare did this truck side during the late summer’s Hip Hop You Don’t Stop Festival. Figurative truck side art by other artists can be seen in the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post.

Some rooftop brilliance by Stare.

Wonez in Rosemont.

More Wonez in Rosemont.

YesB left us this one inside the abandoned Transco whilst in Montreal this summer.

Yesir going for gold.

Zek is constantly brilliant, but this one made the list because it was well hidden and could do with a bit more exposure.

Zek‘s contribution to an early summer jam with the 123Klan.

One of the few ones <Zek left at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen in 2015. Check out also the Top 100 murals and other painted pieces of 2015 post for more by Zek.

New graffiti October 2015

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during the first half of October 2015. Of course, this is just a fraction of what was produced in this city during that time – it is the best of what I was lucky enough to catch. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les meilleures pièces de graffitis qui ont été produites au cours de la première moitié d’octobre 2015 à Montréal et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.


Silver Beach @ JDM

On the first weekend of the month 18 artists answered Skor‘s invitation and covered the whole length of the JDM wall (actually all of it with the exception of the very first ‘Peace’ at the very left) with 16 pieces in silver as well as a few characters. My photos of the works created during this unofficial event have already been published in this Bombing Science article alongside those of others. Here they are again, in the same order as they appear on the wall.

Au cours du premier weekend du mois, 18 artistes ont répondu à l’appel de Skor et ont recouvert tout le mur JDM (en fait tout le mur sauf le premier ‘Peace’ à gauche) avec 16 pièces de couleur argent ainsi que quelques personnages. Mes photos des pièces créées au cours de cet événement non-officiel ont déjà été publiées dans cet article pour Bombing Science aux cotés de celles d’autres photographes. Les revoici, dans le même ordre dans lequel les pièces apparaissent sur le mur en question.

L’édition d’octobre 2015 du Jam de Rouen au mur legal du tunnel de Rouen a aussi eu lieu au cours de la première fin de semaine du mois. Voici ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier. Le reste était déjà recouvert de nouveau matériel ou vandalisé lors de ma visite le lendemain de l’événement.

the 180 and 210 Ste-Catherine est

The windows of the 180 Ste-Catherine est building were plastered with wheatpastes while the boarded up old windows at the bottom were painted by various figurative artists from Montreal. The space beneath the four windows on the Hotel de Ville side of 210 Ste-Catherine est across the street were painted by Stadium Art Movement (Jonathan Himsworth).

Les fenêtres du 180 Ste-Catherine est se sont vues recouvertes de collages tandis que les anciennes fenêtres placardées au niveau de la rue ont été peintes par divers artistes figuratifs de Montréal. L’espace se trouvant sous les fenêtres du 210 Ste-Catherine est (coté Hotel de Ville) a été peint par Stadium Art Movement (Jonathan Himsworth).
