Jaker

Jaker is one of the top graffiti writers in Montreal. His allegiances are to the BTH and GK crews. He has very little presence on the internet. If you wish to see much more than what I was lucky to find, particularly pieces on trains, have a look at his Instagram page. This Bombing Science video on Youtube shows great footage of Jaker in action on an autorack.

Jaker est un des meilleurs graffeurs à Montréal. Il est membres des crews BTH et GK. Il n’est que très peu présent officiellement sur internet. Si vous désirez en voir beaucoup plus que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, particulièrement des pièces sur train, jetez un coup d’oeil à sa page Instagram. Cette excellente video de Bombing Science montre l’artiste en action.

Retrospective of 2016 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2016. 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 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 murales et autres pièces de street art peint créées en 2016 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 2016 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

Astro in Petite-Patrie. This was on the Plaza Walls programme despite not being in the Plaza St-Hubert immediate neighbourhood.

(Two photos above) Two angles of these Plateau schoolyard sheds done by Astro at the beginning of the summer.

(Three photos above) This long wall on the side of a Hochelaga daycare was made more cheerful by Astro.

The side wall of this Taichi studio in Ahuntsic was embellished with this beautiful piece by Axe and Awe. Another bit by Axe on the right was from earlier than 2016.

Both Axe and Awe have made it into the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti, Axe under his own name, ‘K6A’ and ‘Naimo’; Awe under his own name and ‘Lyfer’.

Axe on a tin covered wall at Plaza Walls.

This is Jonathan Bergeron‘s contribution to the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

Bik Ismo was a last minute addition to the programme of the 2016 edition of Mural Festival and produced one of the most loved walls this year.

A small but fascinating piece by Biko in an obscure spot beneath an overpass. Check the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art for more by Biko.

A garage door by Bosny in Plateau End.

This is a collaborative mural between Bosny and Koal for Plaza Walls. If you look closely, you’ll see that the white shapes are very stylized letters making the names of the two artists (Koal, then Bosny). Check out the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti for more by these two.

Botkin came up with 10 sidewalk pieces for the 2016 edition of Mural Festival. Three of these have made this retrospective, this one and the two below.

(Above two photos) Clandestinos, the duo of Shalak and Bruno Smoky, paid us a quick visit at the end of the summer and left us the two sides of this Rosemont park container.

Cryote had a busy year in 2016. This unofficial creation was found on sliding doors at the abandoned Montreal Hippodrome.

It was the year of the dog in Montreal street art in 2016, in big part because of a controversial by-law banning pitbulls and other related breeds. Cryote is one of many artists who took the paintbrush and spraycan in protest of this cruel decision that will eventually lead to the euthanasia of many harmless dogs.

Cryote (central figures) and Waxhead (leafy figures and door) in a Mile End alley. Scroll down to ‘Waxhead’ for more by these two artists.

Melissa del Pinto was commissioned by Mu for this beautiful piece on the wall of the Museum of Fine Arts’ new pavilion.

There were a lot of famous international names from the street art circuit on the programme of the 2016 edition of Mural Festival, including that of D*Face.

Dodo Osé‘s star took a leap in 2016; this little masterpiece in a Hochelaga alley is just one of many great works the artist produced this past year.

Dodo Osé also came up with this beautiful downtown tribute to his native city of Lyon.

Another Dodo Osé entry in this retrospective, this one was done in St-Henri. Check out the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti (under ‘K6A’) for more by this artist.

Off-Mural Festival work by Earth Crusher. Check out the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti for more by Earth Crusher (under ‘Five Eight’).

Elfu makes this yearly roundup with this funny Oktoberfest piece. Next to it are letters by his POM crewmate EK Sept. Check out the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti for more by those two, under ‘POM’.

This past year we were finally treated to a proper mural by Ella & Pitr. The duo had in the past produced a number of great pieces in Montreal, but these were always on roofs and parking spaces, therefore only visible to people flying above and could only be photographed with the help of a drone.

There were a lot of big international names on the programme of the 2016 edition of Mural Festival, but Montreal is home to a lot of great talent and local artist Five Eight produced one of this year’s most loved murals. Have a look at the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti for more by this artist/writer.

Five Eight and Rouks collaborated on this segment of a huge project put together by Ashop in NDG. More from this Ashop production above under ‘Ankh One’ and below under ‘Fonki’. Scroll down for more great collaborative work by Rouks.

This is Fonki‘s contribution to the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

There were a log of dogs in Montreal street art in 2016, partly because of that anti-pitbull by-law, but also because two big murals were commissioned by owners in tribute to their dogs who had passed away. This is the one done by Fonki, scroll down to Kevin Ledo for the other one.

Fonki also collaborated with Ms Teri on a segment of a mega Ashop production in NDG. More from this huge production above under ‘Ankh One’ and ‘Five Eight’. Check out the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti for more by Ms Teri.

A street art hotspot in a Mile End alley was completely redone in 2016 following construction on some of its walls. This one by Gawd is one of the new pieces found there.

Gawd (right) and Labrona (left) also make this retrospective with this unofficial combo on the wall of an abandoned building in Mercier. Scroll down for more work by these two, under ‘Labrona’. The two also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art.

Germ Dee is a new big addition to the local street art scene. He started being active late spring and within a few months he produced an impressive number of pieces in Plateau/Mile End alleys and beyond. His impact on the local scene is also felt through the numerous collaborations and productions he put together with many fellow artists and crewmates.

Some off-Mural Festival work by Carly and Nick Gregson.

Thanks to the buzz created by the Plaza Walls event this summer, Haks managed to get this commission from a Plaza St-Hubert business, his largest solo work to date. Scroll up for more by Haks under ‘Luc Bouchard’. Haks also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti.

French artist Hobz paid us a visit during the summer and this Plaza Walls creation is one of the two major pieces he left us before heading back home.

Hobz‘s other production during his stay in Montreal also made this yearly retrospective.

HoarKor aka HRKR were the ones commissioned to redo the terrasse wall of the Foufounes Electriques during this year’s Under Pressure Festival.

Another big project this past year for HRKR was the front wall of this Plateau bar. The duo have also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti.

Hsix hit a double whammy, he was on the programme of both the Mural Festival and Under Pressure this year. This is his contribution to the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

Besides contributing to this city’s two major international street art and graffiti events this year, Hsix also contributed to Plaza Walls with this much noticed piece.

The front wall of this Plateau bookstore was redone by Hsix this past year.

One of the bigger walls of the 2016 edition of the Under Pressure Festival features Hsix (character on the left), Sermob (bears), Bryan Beyung (horse) and les Hommes de Lettres (top letters), all tied together by Monk.e. Scroll down for more by Monk.e and Sermob under ‘Monk.e’, and more Sermob under his own name.

Here is Klone Yourself‘s contribution to the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

Labrona (humans) and Gawd (animals) for the 2016 edition of the Under Pressure Festival. Scroll up for more by these two under ‘Gawd’. The two also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art.

Kevin Ledo was commissioned to produce this beautiful tall mural on Décarie as a tribute to someone’s deceased dog. The small piece at the base is an older one by John Kaye.

This is Kevin Ledo‘s tribute to local comedian/actress Janine Sutto. The mural was commissioned by Mu and is found in Centre-Sud.

One of the highlights of Plaza Walls this autumn was to witness the creation of this beautiful mural by El Mac.

Mateo‘s contribution to the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

This is Mateo on the side wall of a church in Petite-Patrie. Mateo also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art.

A brilliant mural piece by MC Baldassari in a Plateau alley.

(Two photos above) MC Baldassari (top photo) and Hot Sluts’n’Poutine (bottom photo) set of garage doors in the Plateau.

Meggs‘ sponsored wall for the 2016 edition of Mural Festival.

Some great work by Monk.e on the tin-covered side of a garage at Plaza Walls. More Monk.e can be found in the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti post, under ‘Ashop’.

(Three photos above) Monk.e was commissioned to embellish a number of city park containers this summer. This one stands out of the lot, in huge part because of the striking feline stare on its front (top photo). The two other shots are views of the sides and back.

Monk.e hosted Mexican artist Sermob for a few months during the summer and together they gave this K6A wall in Hochelaga its annual makeover. Scroll up for more by these two under ‘Hsix’. Monk.e is also featured in a collaboration with Tibuton further down this list.

This is Mono Sourcil on the side of a Plateau café. Mono Sourcil also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art.

Mono Sourcil in a Plateau End alley which was completely taken over this past summer under the supervision of Germdee. Visible in the background is a piece by Wzrds Gng.

Portrait of Gaston Miron by Omen on a wall of a Montreal Nord school. Bottom part is preemptive damage control by the artist himself.

This striking Julian Palma mural was commissioned by Mu for the 35th anniversary of the Montreal Alzheimer’s Society.

Another one of the big international names on the programme of the 2016 edition of Mural Festival was Pantone‘s.

Mural in Petite-Patrie by La Parade (MngeLeKrak / Ludo Mio)

An eerie one from the mind of Alex Produkt.

This is a brilliant collaboration between Rouks (woman) and Lapin (head dress) for the 2016 edition of the Under Pressure Festival. If you look closely, you’ll see that the feathers on the woman’s headdress are actually graffiti letters by Speak (top feather), Capes (middle feather), Eskae (bottom feather). Also visible in this shot are pieces by Sirvis (above) and Cole (bottom right).

SBU One in Petite-Patrie.

SBU One in the Plateau. He also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 pasted street art.

One of the highlights of Plaza Walls is this huge mural by Sen2 Figueroa which was created in parallel to a show of his work at the Art Gang gallery.

Sermob and Naimo collaboration in the Plateau. More by Sermob above under ‘Hsix’ and ‘Monk.e’. Naimo has also made it into the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti.

Skor proved this year that he is more than just a brilliant writer.

Check out the full piece including letters by himself and crewmate Narc. Skor also has four entries in the Retrospective of 2016 graffiti.

Here’s another protest piece by Turf One, this one commissioned by the SPCA who were also against the city’s cruel pitbull by-law.

Turtle Caps on a Plateau alley garage door.

The production of the year (excluding festival-related ones) is without a doubt the one curated by Waxhead and Cryote on the wall of a Plateau End youth center. This shot shows one of the production’s three walls, it brings together Waxhead (2 cats, foliage), Cryote (pink dog and blue dog head), Peru143 (yellow letters), Meor (beneath pink dog), Gets (green letters), Pound Puppy (dog bottom right) and Mole Patrol (bottom left).

Mural Festival 2016

This article features the new murals created during the 2016 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 (June 9th to 19th).

Five earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Bicicleta Sem Freio and the 4-Tin mural from the 2015 edition, the Alexis Diaz one from the 2014 edition, the LNY mural from the 2013 edition, as well as the Ashop mural done last autumn because the wall was not ready on time for last year’s edition.</
