Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2016 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.

It was a rather quiet year for stickers. Many of our slappers were out of town for extended periods of time or were just busy with work and the rest of their life. Also, the city was more quick in removing and painting over stickers. Meanwhile, the medium of wheatpasting was more popular than before, particularly during the period of May to July. Consequently, the list this year features many more wheatpastes and fewer stickers than before.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2016 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 2016 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.

2016 a été une année tranquille pour les autocollants. Plusieurs de nos artistes s’adonnant à ce medium ont été absents une bonne partie de l’année et d’autres étaient occupés à autre chose. De plus, la ville s’est donnée en 2016 une politique plus aggressive contre cette forme d’expression artistique. Entre-temps, beaucoup d’artistes locaux se sont mis aux collages et plusieurs colleurs étrangers sont passés par Montréal, particulièrement de mai à juillet. Conséquemment, cette année cette liste inclut beaucoup plus de collages et moins d’autocollants que d’habitude.

New graffiti May 2016

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during May 2016 and that I was lucky enough to catch. 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. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les meilleurs graffitis créés à Montréal au cours de mai 2016 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier.

Suite à mon retour, ce que je trouverai qui aura été fait en mai sera ajouté à cette gallerie. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

New street art April 2016

Here’s a photo gallery of the new street art having appeared on the streets of Montreal during April 2016. The post is split into sections covering painted pieces, pasted pieces, 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 d’avril 2016. Il est séparé en quatre sections: oeuvres peintes, collages, 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.
