Retrospective of 2020 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2020 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 2020 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 2020 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.

Above 2 photos: Huile d’Olive pasted these posters from the very beginning of the Covid19 pandemic, they were the very first pieces of public art addressing the subject. The posters were made in French or English, in a variation of colours. Huile d’Olive has also made it into the Retrospective of 2020 murals and other painted street art.

Above 8 photos: While the streets of Montreal were deserted at the very beginning of the Covid19 pandemic, Louis Letters decided to take the 36 Days Of Type challenge outside. The 36 Days Of Type Challenge invites designers and graphic artists to create their own versions of the letters A to Z then the numbers 0 to 9. The creations are usually posted on Instagram, but Louis Letters had the great idea of bringing his creations to the street, photograph them in situ and then post them. The photos above show the letters N,O, R, T, U, V, W and X.

Here’s a 50 x 50 tile installation by Shelley Miller inspired by the first wave of the Covid19 pandemic. The colours each represent a different Montreal borough (in percentage of cases), and each column represents a day, for 50 days. It therefore shows how in the early days of the pandemic (left of the piece), the relative evolution of boroughs was quite different, but after 35 days (right of the piece), everything seemed to stabilize.

One more mock business sign by Benny Wilding. This artist has also made it into the Retrospective of 2020 graffiti (under ‘Cemz’).

There’s a great story around this pasted policeman piece by Zola. She had initially contributed a painted anti-police brutality piece on this garage door for the 2020 editon of Canettes de Ruelle (still partially visible – click on her name above to view original). Unfortunately, someone who clearly disapproved of her message vandalised the door with black paint, calling her a cretin in the process. She cleverly flipped the topic back by adding the pasted policeman. Socio-political street art at its best!

Heads rolled in 2020, particularly that of the statue of first Canadian prime minister John A Macdonald. Macdonald allowed famine and disease to kill many indigenous people and his government forced some First Nation communities to leave their traditional territories, withholding food until they did so. In August 2020 his statue, which had been sprayed with blood red paint many times, was finally toppled by activists. Shortly after Zola immortalised the moment with this poster.

A wheatpaste by Zola found in Rosemont.

An unidentified artist has pasted around Hochelaga black and white photos of various people of the neighbourhood. This is one of almost a dozen by the same artist which I have been lucky enough to find and photograph.

One more pasted piece by the unidentified Hochelaga artist putting up black and white photos of neighbourhood citizens. This one is of a street musician and the piece was actually put up behind where he usually plays to passersby on Ontario street, prompting many of them to photograph the musician playing in front of this photo of himself.

This wheatpaste of George Floyd was put up in Mile End shortly after the murder that sparked the 2020 Black Lives Matter chapter.

Pieces in this style by an unidentified artist have been found here and there in Hochelaga alleys, in Old Montreal and around St-Laurent. Sometimes found as double sets as shown here, but usually as a single piece.

This wheatpaste by an unidentified artist was found in Petite-Patrie.

Wolf wheatpastes have been found around Petite-Patrie. The artist has not been identified but is presumed to be the same one as the piece above.

Black Lives Matter

This post brings together photos of urban art relating to the Black Lives Matter movement done in the streets of Montreal following the death of George Floyd on 25 May 2020. The BLM movement started in 2013 after the acquittal of the policeman who killed Trayvon Martin and has been a source of inspiration for a few pieces in Montreal between the years 2013 and 2020, but following the killing of George Floyd by a white policeman in 2020, as in many major cities around the world, many artists in Montreal were compelled to voice their anger through the creation of murals, graffiti pieces and pasted art.

Cet article présente des photos d’art urbain inspiré par le mouvement Black Lives Matter dans les rues de Montréal suite au décès de George Floyd le 25 mai 2020. Le mouvement BLM a débuté en 2013 suite à l’acquittement du policier responsable du meurtre de Trayvon Martin et a été une source d’inspiration pour quelques pièces à Montréal entre les années 2013 et 2020. Suite au meurtre de George Floyd par un policier blanc en 2020, tout comme dans plusieurs autres grandes villes autour du monde, plusieurs artistes à Montréal ont senti le besoin de manifester leur colère via la création de pièces murales, de graffiti et de collages.


painted work

As in many other cities around the world, a huge Black Lives Matter street piece was done in Montreal. In French, “La vie des noir.e.s compte” was produced by Gala Dynastie and Never Was Average and painted by multiple artists, one artist per letter. Scroll down for close-ups.
