New graffiti May-June 2016

This post features photos of graffiti pieces created around Montreal during May and June 2016 and that I was lucky enough to catch (I was out of the country for 2 weeks during this period). Some graffiti from May is already featured in the earlier post titled New graffiti May 2016. 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 et juin 2016 et que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et photographier (j’ai été absent deux semaines pendant cette période). Des graffitis faits en mai ont déjà été publiés dans cet article intitulé New graffiti May 2016. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

Retrospective of 2015 graffiti

This image gallery brings together 100 great pieces of Montreal graffiti from 2015. 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 under one common theme count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de graffiti produites en 2015 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 2015 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique de nom 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.

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 Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art 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.

Crane in Rosemont.

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.

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.

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.
